HC Deb 19 May 2003 vol 405 cc582-3W
Norman Lamb

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence (1) if he will make a statement on the future of RAF Lyneham; [112690]

(2) for what reason the Strategic Airfield Study was not published before the Easter recess; and when the Strategic Airfield Study will be published. [112689]

Mr. Ingrain

The outcome of the Strategic Review into the future of RAF Brize Norton, RAF Lyneham and RAF St Mawgan was not published before the Easter recess because of the requirement to take into account the experience of Operation TELIC. I hope to be in a position to announce the outcome of the review in the next few weeks.
