EDM #126
Tabled 12 November 1991
1991-92 Session
There have been 2 amendments to this EDM.
That this House views with dismay the continued indecision of the Ministry of Defence in relation to the relocation of the DGDQA facility from Woolwich to Stockton-on-Tees and its continued failure to honour its previous commitment to such dispersal made in March 1989; regrets that other departmental relocations have been directed elsewhere as a result of that prior commitment penalising Cleveland in the process; notes that over ú4 million has already been spent on the proposed move and apprentices in Stockton trained ahead of it; recalls that a further answer on the move was promised by the Under Secretary then concerned in April 1991, and again in July 1991; regrets that a third study is still being made on the move; deplores the disappointment this further indecision must cause to the hundreds of Ministry of Defence staff and their families who have already visited the site and the Stockton youngsters recruited for Ministry of Defence apprenticeships; applauds the continued fight by Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council and Cleveland County Council to push for a positive resolution in the matter; and trusts that such a binding pledge can be made well ahead of the next general election in order to assist electors in the important decisions they will then be making.
