HC Deb 14 May 1987 vol 116 cc339-40W
Mr. Austin Mitchell

asked the Secretary of State for Defence what was the number of men stationed at, the number of civilians employed at, and the annual total cost of RAF Binbrook for each of the last eight years.

Mr. Freeman

The present cost accounting system for RAF stations has been in operation for only the last five years. During this period the annual direct operating costs at RAF Binbrook have been as follows:

£ million
1982–83 27.1
1983–84 31.6
1984–85 39.3
1985–86 37.8
11986–87 40.0
1 Estimate.

Over the same period the number of civilian staff, including part-time employees, as at 1 April each year, has been as follows:

1983 134
1984 111
1985 111
1986 113
1987 111

It is not our practice, for security reasons, to publish the number of senior personnel at individual stations or establishments.
