Armed Forces: Vehicles

Volume 467: debated on Thursday 22 November 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence (1) how many and what percentage of military vehicles have been cannibalised in each year since 2003, broken down by type; (165999)

(2) how many components from each type of military vehicle have been cannibalised in each year since 2003.

This information is not held in the format requested and could be provided only at disproportionate cost. Cannibalisation of land vehicles is rare and cannibalisation rates are not significant indicators of performance against target availability levels. Vehicle availability on operations continues to be high.
