Sir Nicholas Soames: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, if he will list the global network of operational and logistic support bases for the (a) Royal Navy, (b) Army and (c) Royal Air Force for the purpose of delivering international security.

Mark Lancaster, Minister of State for the Armed Forces: In answering this question, we have defined 'the global network of operational and logistic support bases' to mean any overseas Ministry of Defence owned or leased bases.

Due to the Joint nature of military operations it is difficult to allocate these bases to a single Service in any meaningful way. The list is as follows:

British Forces Germany

British Forces Cyprus

British Forces Gibraltar

British Forces South Atlantic Islands

- Falkland Islands

- Ascension Island

British Indian Ocean Territory

British Defence Singapore Support Unit, Singapore

Joint Logistics Support Base, Duqm, Oman.
