Afghanistan: Peace Keeping Operations

Volume 460: debated on Thursday 24 May 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how many heavily armoured Land Rovers are available to British troops in each region of Afghanistan. (136394)

There are around 140 Weapon-Mount Installation Kit Land Rovers and 130 Snatch Land Rovers deployed with British forces in southern Afghanistan. I am withholding deployment by region as disclosure would, or would be likely to, prejudice the capability, effectiveness and security of our armed forces.
