I am withholding details about the numbers of such equipment purchased as its disclosure would, or would be likely to, prejudice the capability, effectiveness or security of the armed forces.

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how many pieces of surveillance and target acquisition equipment of each type there were in the armed forces in each year since 1997. (162652)
