Lord Macaulay of Bragar: asked Her Majesty's Government: How many members of HM Armed Forces are currently based in Germany; how many civil personnel are also based there; and what legal and military duties the British personnel perform while in Germany.
Lord Macaulay of Bragar: asked Her Majesty's Government: When the British military personnel will cease duties in Germany and leave the country; and whether the decision to relocate the British troops from Germany is one which is in the sole control of the Government.
Lord Macaulay of Bragar: asked Her Majesty's Government: What are the current annual costs in relation to the presence of British troops and support services in Germany.
Lord Macaulay of Bragar: In relation to subsection (7)(d) are we not making a mountain out of molehill? The word "and", which precedes "if he has died", is important. That consequentially brings the identity of the person to a logical end, whether dead or alive.
