(2) what land in the Greater London area, other than military land, is to be used during Exercise Brave Defender; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Stanley
I refer the hon. Member to the reply given by my right hon. Friend to my hon. Friend the Member for Newark (Mr. Alexander) on 21 March, at columns 585–86. We do not intend to publish the list of exercise locations in advance of the exercise, as this could be prejudicial to the training value of the exercise and to exercise security.
