Hercules Aircraft

Volume 470: debated on Tuesday 15 January 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what percentage of the RAF Hercules transport fleet currently in service have been fitted with foam fire suppressant in the wings. (177888)

I am withholding the information as its disclosure would, or would be likely to, prejudice the capability, effectiveness or security of the armed forces.

All Hercules aircraft that are routinely deployed on operations in Iraq and Afghanistan are now fitted with Explosion Suppressant Foam.
