To ask the Secretary of State for Defence whether the rescheduling of work at Aldershot military barracks for the British Olympic shooting team will affect the timescale for work to be carried out on other units and barracks.

The capital works being undertaken at Aldershot Garrison are not for the benefit of the British Olympic Association but for service personnel. The rescheduling of the programme for new single living accommodation means that the new accommodation will be available for use by soldiers some three months early. This work is already planned to be completed by 2012 and advancing it slightly will have no adverse effect on works at Aldershot, or elsewhere.
