To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what the value was of spare parts lost in transit in each year since 2003. (180272)

Data are not held in such a way that enables the separate identification of “spare parts”. Losses in transit have only been recorded separately since 2005. For financial years 2005-06 and 2006-07, the reported value of losses in transit was £4.8 million and £2.9 million respectively. As at 31 December 2007, the total value of losses recorded for financial year 2007-08 is £2.3 million.
