Afghanistan: Peacekeeping Operations

Volume 474: debated on Thursday 3 April 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how many instances there were of equipment of the armed forces being lost in transit either (a) en route to and (b) in (i) Afghanistan and (ii) Iraq in each year since 2003. (190601)

Other than those attributed to theft, there are no reported instance of equipment of the armed forces being lost in transit between the UK and either Iraq or Afghanistan. In terms of theft, I have nothing to add to the answer I gave on 8 October 2007, Official Report, column 62W.
