To ask the Secretary of State for Defence for what reason the in service date for battlegroup thermal imaging has been delayed; and if he will make a statement. [99799]

The in service date for Battlegroup Thermal Imaging (BGTI) equipment has been revised so that it better aligns with the conversion programme for Bowman. This minimises the disruption to front line units as vehicles that are to receive both BGTI and Bowman will only need to be withdrawn from service for a single period, during which both conversions will be completed.
