To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, pursuant to the answer dated 13 October 2020 to Question 907478 on USA: RAF Croughton, what assessment he has made of the US Government's compliance with obligations under Article II of the NATO Status of Forces Agreement in respect of activities at RAF Croughton.

The legal status of US military personnel stationed at RAF Croughton is governed by the NATO Status of Forces Agreement 1951 (SOFA), and by the Visiting Forces Act 1952 which was enacted in order to implement relevant provisions of the SOFA in UK domestic law. It is my assessment that the US military personnel stationed at RAF Croughton are in full compliance with the terms of this legal framework.
