Iraq: Armoured Fighting Vehicles

Volume 476: debated on Monday 2 June 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence whether any of the second tranche of Mastiffs have been deployed to (a) Iraq and (b) Afghanistan. (207047)

No. I also refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave on 1 April 2008, Official Report, column 792W.

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what role is planned for Mastiff armoured vehicles once large scale operations in Iraq and Afghanistan have been concluded. (207197)

The requirement for Mastiff patrol vehicles on current operations is likely to continue. We will review the future requirement for Mastiff, and other vehicles of this type, once operations in Iraq and Afghanistan have been completed.
