Night Vision Equipment

Volume 450: debated on Wednesday 25 October 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what guidelines are used by his Department for the allocation of night vision goggles to troops; and if he will make a statement. (95537)

There are no specific guidelines issued for the allocation of night vision goggles. It is for Commanders to determine when and how they are used and the equipment is then issued to individuals according to the requirements of each task. Priority is given to units either on Operations, or undertaking pre-deployment training.
