HC Deb 18 May 1998 vol 312 c254W
32. Mr. Ian Bruce

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence if he will make a statement on his progress in finding alternative uses for(a) the Royal Navy facilities being released by the move of HMS Osprey and (b) the facilities at Bovington made available by the civilianisation of armoured fighting vehicle training. [41328]

Dr. Reid

At present, no alternative defence uses for the site at HMS Osprey have been identified. The Army Training and Recruiting Agency is looking at the site in the context of a study into options for rationalisation of the Adjutant General's Corps Training Group, which currently occupies a number of sites in the South. The results of the study will be published at the end of June. The awards of the facilities management contract at the Royal Armoured Corps Centre at Bovington and Lulworth has not resulted in the release of any specific facilities.
