Afghanistan: Peacekeeping Operations

Volume 477: debated on Thursday 19 June 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what assessment he has made of the modifications which could be made to Land Rovers to give greater security to troops operating in Afghanistan and Iraq. (211425)

The protection available to the Land Rover fleet is under constant review. A number of improvements have been made to provide ballistic and blast protection and further programmes are under way to provide additional protection enhancements within the limits of the vehicle capability. I am withholding the details of these measures as release would or would be likely to, prejudice the capability, effectiveness or security of the armed forces.
