HC Deb 07 May 1996 vol 277 c17W
24. Dr. Goodson-Wickes

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what progress he can report on the use of training areas by British and allied forces in the former Warsaw pact countries. [26942]

Mr. Soames

We plan that the Army will exercise in both Poland and Ukraine in September of this year, subject to final confirmation by the Governments of those two countries. Discussions over other possible training opportunities in central and eastern Europe are continuing. The arrangements under which other allies train in central and eastern Europe are a matter for the countries concerned.
