This Government’s intention is that all of the main defence bases inherited at the point of independence will be retained as they will, following a transitional period, be needed by Scotland’s defence forces.
The current Scottish Government will also be open to discussion with the Westminster Government about continued arrangements for shared basing where that is in the joint interests of both countries.
