Rhodri Morgan, The First Minister
This Statement informs Members that I have established a Ministerial Steering Group, chaired by Andrew Davies, to oversee the effective engagement of public sector partners at all levels in Wales with the Ministry of Defence and Metrix consortium and the effective delivery of the substantial investment, I referred to in my oral statement to Plenary on 17 January.

The largest investment to come to Wales in recent decades presents its own unique challenges.  To ensure that the priority given to timely progress of this investment reflects its importance and scale, focussing our decision making and resource allocation in the most effective way.  

The Membership and Terms of Reference of the Group are attached. We have also invited Mike Hayle, Chief Executive of the Metrix Consortium, to attend meetings of the Steering Group to underline our joint commitment that by working cooperatively together, we can make this a real success and provide our armed forces with a world class training facility.

The Assembly Government will update the Enterprise, Innovation and Networks Committee, other Committees, and the Assembly as a whole, on progress with the project at regular intervals.
