holding answer 15 January 2008

I announced on 25 July 2007 that work would continue to assess whether sale of Defence Aviation Repair Agency Rotary Wing and Components businesses offers best value for Defence.

As part of this assessment, my officials are considering all operational issues, including the ability of any new private sector owner to maintain the standards currently being achieved by DARA, before a final sale decision is made. Sale will only proceed on the basis that current levels of productivity and versatility are maintained or improved.
