Volume 494: debated on Monday 22 June 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how many UK service personnel are stationed at each location overseas. (280813)

Figures for the number of service personnel stationed overseas can be found in Table 1.1 of Tri-Service Publication (TSP) 10: UK Regular Forces stationed location. TSP 10 is published quarterly and is available in the Library of the House. The most recent publication shows figures at 1 April 2009 and can be found at the following link.

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how many and what percentage of personnel in each army corps are exceeding their harmony guidelines for (a) tour intervals and (b) individual separated service. (280817)

The information on tour intervals is not held in the format requested.

The latest available data, as at December 2006, recorded separated service guideline breaches at an average of 10.3 per cent. across the Army. It is hoped that more detailed separated service data will, in future, be provided by the Joint Personnel Administration System.
