§ Mr. Allen Adams
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport how many military airports there are in Scotland.
§ Mr. Neubert
I have been asked to reply.
There are four permanent Royal Air Force airfields in Scotland and one operated by the Procurement Executive of the Ministry of Defence. RAF Stornoway, which is normally operated as a civil airport by Highlands and Islands Airports Limited, is also activated as a military airfield for up to six weeks a year. In addition there are service units located at a number of other civil airfields from which regular military flying takes place.
