To ask the Secretary of State for Defence pursuant to the answer of 12 March 2014, Official Report, column 219W, on electric vehicles, if he will place in the Library entries from the defence contracts bulletin relating to the installation of charge points at RMA Sandhurst, RAF Northolt and RAF Halton and the installation of 13 points at DSTL sites in Wiltshire, Hampshire and Kent.

There are no entries in the Defence Contracts Bulletin (DCB) relating to the installation of charge points for electric vehicles at these sites.

The work for the installation of charge points at RMA Sandhurst and RAF Northolt was not advertised in the DCB because it was a single source contract (having sought a number of competitive quotes to ensure value for money) placed by a facilities management partner of the Defence Infrastructure Organisation. Potential work at RAF Halton will not be taken forward at this stage. Installation of charge points at DSTL sites will not appear in the DCB because it will be completed by their facilities management partner.
