§ Mr. Redmond
To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what is the designated role and purpose of the new Army base at Upavon, Wiltshire; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Hanley
The headquarters organisation of the Army's inspector general doctrine and training has collocated in Upavon from eight separate locations in the United Kingdom. The primary role and purpose of the organisation is to formulate a coherent military doctrine; to ensure the translation of that doctrine into training policy and the implementation of individual training and training support to meet it.
