§ Lord Jenkins of Putney
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether in 1982 there were 112 United States military installations in the United Kingdom, including six major installations, seven large minor installations, and an additional 99 locations providing housing, storage, communication and operational support; and what was the position in 1983.
§ The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for the Armed Forces (Lord Trefgarne)
I do not recognise the figure of 112 United States military installations quoted by the noble Lord. As at 31st December 1982, my right honourable and honourable friends had listed in another place 63 United States bases and facilities in the United Kingdom. The comparable figure as at 31st December 1983 was 62 United States bases and facilties. There are, in addition, a number of sites used solely for housing.
