I have searched and cannot find any other reference to this announcement.

Military base brings 5,000 jobs

The government has confirmed that a new defence training academy will be based at St Athan, creating 5,000 jobs and £58m annually to the local economy.
It marks the largest single investment in Wales and follows setbacks in making the Vale of Glamorgan site a centre of aviation excellence.

The academy will teach skills from aeronautical engineering to security to some 10,000 armed forces personnel.

Defence Secretary Des Browne made the announcement to MPs in the Commons.
