HC Deb 03 December 1993 vol 233 c792W
Mr. Home Robertson

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence by which units the site known as Vitez garage, Bosnia, is currently being used for accommodation purposes; how many personnel are involved; whether improvements planned to be made to facilities, including the provision of ablution and sanitation units, have been effected; whether the 35 four-man accommodation units on an adjacent site have yet been commissioned and occupied; what plans he has for expanding or improving accommodation on these sites; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Hanley

The site is currently being used for accommodation purposes by part of the logistic support element of 1 Coldstream Guards, a light aid detachment of REME, a forward recovery group of REME and a forward ordnance team of Royal Logistic Corps, a total of 131 personnel. Occupied and in use are 39 four-man accommodation units, two rest rooms, three shower blocks, three toilet blocks and one laundry block. In addition, there are three toilets in the existing garage. One fire-damaged portacabin is to be replaced and there are plans to provide portacabin kitchen facilities to enable the present kitchen area to revert to its original use.
