Question for Ministry of Defence

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, what steps he plans to take to reassure service families at Leuchars Station that accommodation improvement plans will not be affected by the difficulties facing Carillion plc.

All of the services directly provided to Service personnel and their families worldwide, including catering and housing, will remain unchanged; this has been communicated to Service personnel through the chain of command.

The facilities management contracts, which provide services to Service personnel and their families which involved Carillion, are all with Incorporated Joint Ventures (JVs). These are independent legal entities and the partners to those JVs are required to deliver the requirements of the JV if one of the partners fails.

We are working with the relevant JV partners to ensure that they continue to deliver the required services.
