To ask Her Majesty’s Government, further to the Written Answer by Lord Astor of Hever on 6 May (WA 319), how many non-operational airfields not capable of supporting fixed-wing military aircraft are owned by the Royal Air Force.

It is the MOD rather than the single services who own airfields. The RAF does not use any non-operational airfields, which are not capable of supporting military fixed wing aircraft. For the purposes of answering this question, volunteer gliders have been included as fixed military wing aircraft.
