HC Deb 23 November 1995 vol 267 cc259-60W
Mr. Cohen

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what assessment he has made of the Royal Ordnance having an office in the procurement division of his Department and a stand with exhibits on permanent exhibition in his Department's main building; and if he will make a statement. [1047]

Mr. Arbuthnot

In certain circumstances, main defence contractors may be allocated office space within MoD buildings; any such requests are considered on their merits. Royal Ordnance has an office on the Defence Evaluation and Research Agency site at Fort Halstead, but it does not have an office within the procurement executive, and there are no plans to provide one.

There is no permanent exhibition of Royal Ordnance products within my Department's main building.
