Volume 454: debated on Monday 11 December 2006

19. To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what assessment he has made of the arrangements in place for transporting troops by air to and from Afghanistan and Iraq. (105391)

We continuously monitor the performance of the airbridge and take steps to minimise any disruption when necessary and possible.
