Volume 488: debated on Tuesday 3 March 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how many officers of each rank have served in (a) Iraq and (b) Afghanistan in each year since 2003. (258432)

Data on the numbers of officers who have served in (a) Iraq and (b) Afghanistan in each year during the period 2003-07, broken down by rank are not held centrally in individual level databases and as such could only be provided a disproportionate cost.

Due to ongoing validation of data from the joint personnel administration (JPA) system, data on the numbers of officers who have served in (a) Iraq and (b) Afghanistan in 2008, broken down by rank are not available and as such could only be provided at disproportionate cost.
