To ask the Secretary of State for Defence pursuant to the answer of 30 January 2007, Official Report, column 1070-1W, on Afghanistan, how many undelivered urgent operational requirements since January 2006 related to helicopters; and if he will make a statement. (124602)

Since the start of planning for deployment into southern Afghanistan 23 UORs related to theatre entry modifications to current helicopters in Afghanistan have been approved but not fully delivered to theatre. An initial operating capability has been delivered to theatre for eight of the 23. An additional 10 UORs have been approved and fully delivered. These figures are correct as at 1 March 2007.
