To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how many Minimi LMGs (light machine guns) will be procured for the armed forces; and how many Light Support Weapons will be taken out of front line service. [117499]

We are planning to procure 2,472 Minimi light machine guns. These will supplement the role fulfilled by the Light Support Weapon, all of which will remain in service.
