Armoured Vehicles

Volume 451: debated on Wednesday 1 November 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence pursuant to the answer of 9 October 2006, Official Report, column 176W, on armoured vehicles, what information his Department received about the annual running costs of the RG31 as a result of the competition in 2001 for the Future Command and Liaison Vehicle; and if he will make a statement. (94897)

RG 31 is not in service with the UK armed forces. Indicative whole life costs were received from the contractor in 2001 (as part of the Assessment Phase for the Future Command and Liaison Vehicle). The vehicle was not however offered as part of the subsequent Demonstration, Manufacture and Support (DMS) tender, and the data was therefore not further refined.
