To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what the current estimated monetary value is of the property comprising (a) Naval Base Clyde, (b) Royal Marines Condor, (c) RAF Leuchars, (d) 2nd Division HQ Craigiehall, (e) Defence Estates Hebrides and (f) Fort George; and how much his Department plans to spend on redevelopment at each of these bases.
It will take a little more time to collect and verify information relating to how much the Department plans to spend on redevelopment at each base. I will write to the hon. Member.
We are interpreting DE Hebrides as referring principally to Ministry of Defence sites at Benbecula and St. Kilda and a few other locations.
In my answers of
Work is currently under way at the MOD'S Hebrides Range to assess the investment required to maintain its capability. Until this work is complete, for which a deadline has not been set, any anticipated redevelopment expenditure cannot be identified. Also, no redevelopment work is planned at RAF Brampton as it is due to close in 2012.
For the remaining sites, the forecasted expenditure for the next five years on work that is considered to be redevelopment is as follows:
|MOD site||Total forecasted expenditure (£ million)|
|Naval Base Clyde||101.6|
|Royal Marines Condor||12.6|
|HM Naval Base Devonport||39.0|
|HM Naval Base Portsmouth||166.2|
|2nd Div HQ Craigiehall||15|
|RAF High Wycombe||35.4|
|RAF Brize Norton||216.0|
