I have taken the hon. Member’s questions to refer to the Ministry of Defence’s (MOD) transition work with the Welsh Government initiative for the development of an Air Business Park at MOD St Athan.

The MOD fully understands the importance of this development in Wales, and will continue to support the Welsh Government in its transition to a wholly civil operation by 2019. Whilst the Department is supportive of this initiative, private companies based at MOD St Athan are clients of the Welsh Government; other than dealing with direct routine operational or safety enquires, the Department does not liaise directly with these companies.
