HC Deb 24 January 1986 vol 90 c330W
Mr. Cohen

asked the Secretary of State for Defence how many civilians are employed at bases in Britain where United States service men are stationed; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Lee

Approximately 4,000 United Kingdom Civil Service posts exist at those facilities in the United Kingdom made available for use by the United States forces. Statistics for the employment of United States civilians and United Kingdom civilians other than civil servants are not held centrally, but overall the United States bases make a considerable contribution to employment in the areas in which they are located.
