Military Exercises: Ammunition

Volume 463: debated on Monday 23 July 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how many military exercises were cancelled due to a lack of blank ammunition in each of the last two years. (150624)

In the last two years there are no records of military exercises being cancelled as a result of a lack of blank ammunition. In 2005 some cadet camps experienced a reduced supply, caused by shortages arising from production problems; these were subsequently resolved. Since that time, the Defence General Munitions Integrated Project Team has received no reports of shortages of blank ammunition.
