HC Deb 20 June 1985 vol 81 c181W
Mr. Dixon

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what is the latest figure of the number of civilians working on the Falkland Islands airport construction project; and what information he has as to how many came originally from the northern region.

Sir George Young

As at May 1985, 2,788 civilians were employed by contractors engaged on the Mount Pleasant airport project in the Falkland Islands and the associated project to provide garrison facilities and a port. A further 54 civilians were employed on these projects by PSA. No specific records are kept of the United Kingdom regional origins of these civilians.
