Armed Forces: Planning

Volume 477: debated on Friday 20 June 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence when the armed forces last operated within his Department’s planning assumptions; and when he next expects the armed forces to be operating within these planning assumptions. (212388)

[holding answer 19 June 2008]: As set out in the MOD’s recent annual reports, the armed forces have been operating above our current planning assumptions since 2002. A return to operating within these assumptions will depend upon future commitments.
