Wales Office Minister Stephen Crabb says that the army reorganisation will see a £100 million investment in Wales as 14th Signal Regiment unit relocate to St Athan.
The Ministry of Defence has confirmed that Cawdor Barracks in Brawdy, Pembrokeshire close, with 14th Signal Regiment moving to St Athan in 2018.
Whilst it is disappointing that we will see Cawdor Barracks in Brawdy, Pembrokeshire close, these changes are essential for our future Armed Forces. I am pleased that the defence footprint is largely being maintained and that 14th Signal Regiment will be relocating within Wales to St Athan.
It is also expected that Wales specifically will receive much-needed infrastructure investment of approximately £100m to support the rebasing.
