Iraq: Peacekeeping Operations

Volume 461: debated on Monday 18 June 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how many weapons mounted installation kits and general purpose machine guns are in theatre in (a) Iraq and (b) Afghanistan. (142525)

The Ministry of Defence is currently conducting a policy review of what information can be disclosed about operational equipment without compromising operational security or effectiveness. Until that review is complete, I am withholding this information as its release would, or would be likely to, prejudice capability, effectiveness and security of our armed forces.
