holding answer 22 November 2011

We expect to make substantial savings as a result of returning forces currently based in Germany to the UK. The additional costs to the Ministry of Defence of stationing forces in Germany are at least £250 million a year in allowances and education and medical support. However, a detailed implementation plan for the return of British forces is in the process of being developed, so we do not yet have a profile for the delivery of savings as these additional costs are reduced.
