§ 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.
