§ Mr. Clifton-Brown
To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what progress has been made with moving the RAF Gliding School from RAF Bicester to RAF Rissington. 
§ Mr. Spellar
[holding answer 17 July 2000]: Options for the future basing of the Joint Services Adventurous Training (Gliding) Centre and the Royal Air Force Gliding and Soaring Association Bicester Flying Club are currently being investigated. One option being considered is a move from RAF Bicester to RAF Little Rissington.
Until this work is completed later this year, it will not be possible to decide where these units will be located in future or to progress a move.
