HC Deb 19 May 1997 vol 294 c17W
Mr. Key

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence if the future of the Defence Test and Evaluation Organisation and the continuing use of Boscombe Down airfield will be included in his proposed defence review. [75]

Mr. John Reid

Our country's security needs and foreign policy objectives must be fully reflected in the roles, missions and tasks of our armed forces. The Government have decided therefore to hold a strategic defence and security review. All aspects of defence will be considered in this process.
