Lord Kennet

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether the recent military exercise "Brave Defender" extended to offshore installations in British waters or only to the land of Britain.

The Minister of State for Defence Support (Lord Trefgarne)

Exercise "Brave Defender" was designed to practise plans for the ground defence of vital installations in the United Kingdom. It included activity at certain ports and anchorages but was not extended to offshore installations.
