HC Deb 19 July 1993 vol 229 c88W
Mr. Macdonald

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence when the contract to expand the residential facilities at RAF Stornoway is expected to be announced.

Mr. Hanley

The activation of RAF Stornoway as a forward operation base for RAF aircraft is under review. The requirement for additional residential facilities depends upon the outcome of that review. A decision on whether or not to proceed with the contract will be announced once the review is complete.
