HC Deb 03 November 1997 vol 300 c81W
27. Mr. Streeter

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what plans he has to visit the Royal Marines in Stonehouse, Plymouth, to discuss their role in the strategic defence of the United Kingdom [11761]

Dr. Reid

Rather than visiting three Commando Brigade's Headquarters in Stonehouse, Plymouth, I plan to see them on exercise and to be briefed on the Royal Marines' roles and capabilities during their Winter Training in Norway on 24 and 25 February next. I was extensively briefed on these matters when I visited the Commando Training Centre on 16 September.
