Mr. Hoon: The strength of the Army, including the Gurkhas, will remain broadly as it is today at around 103,500 until full normalisation is achieved in Northern Ireland, when we expect it to reduce to around 102,000.
Norman Baker: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence if he will make it his policy to require prior parliamentary approval of the placement of US interceptor missiles within British military bases. 
Mr. Hoon: There has been no request from the United States Government to base interceptor missiles anywhere in the United Kingdom. It has not been the practice of successive administrations to seek parliamentary approval for decisions of this type. The Government would in any case seek to ensure that Parliament had adequate opportunity for debate on issues relating to missile defence.

Mr. McNamara: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence under what regulations Commander David Axon was removed from HMS Somerset in November 2004; what charges were laid against him; what procedures were adopted to hear and adjudicate on these charges; and what actions were taken as a result. 
Mr. Caplin: Commander David Axon was removed from command of HMS Somerset in December 2004 under regulation BR 8373, Article 2026, following allegations which constituted a breach of equal opportunities policy.

19 Jan 2005 : Column 956W
Kingdom; and what the total United Kingdom financial commitment, including salaries of British personnel involved, was to the ISG. 
Mr. Hoon: Following the conclusions of the comprehensive report of the special adviser to the Director Central Intelligence published on 30 September 2004, the Iraq Survey Group is no longer conducting an active programme of field investigations into weapons of mass destruction, but it does continue to investigate information relating to WMD as it becomes available.
The net additional cost of activities undertaken by UK personnel attached to the ISG has been met by the UK and is included in the published costs of Operation Telic. It is not possible to identify the net additional costs related solely to the work of the UK personnel in the ISG, or the proportion of total costs met by the UK.
