HL Deb 01 February 1999 vol 596 c175WA
Baroness Blatch

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they have any plans, or are considering plans, to relocate RAF logistics headquarters from its present site at RAF Brampton/Wyton in Cambridgeshire. [HL620]

The Minister of State, Ministry of Defence (Lord Gilbert)

Following the Strategic Defence Review, the Chief of Defence Logistics organisation was established, and the MoD is currently looking at possible locations for its headquarters. A number of sites in the UK are under consideration, including RAF Brampton/Wyton.

Some tasks currently undertaken by Headquarters Logistics Command at RAF Wyton/Brampton will be absorbed by the new headquarters. Consequently, the future use of some parts of the Brampton/Wyton site would need to be reviewed, should the new headquarters be located elsewhere. There are a number of other logistics organisations based at RAF Wyton/Brampton which we are not planning to relocate.
