To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what live ammunition is being used during the OSEX 93 war games manoeuvres in mid-Wales; and if he will make a statement.

The Offensive Support Exercise took place in mid-Wales from 12 to 16 July. Attacks against inflatable targets were simulated and therefore no ammunition was used. Sorties were conducted at the MOD ranges at Pembrey Sands where 3 kg practice bombs were used and at Sennybridge where 3 kg practice bombs and 30 mm practice ammunition was fired.
