Tornado Aircraft

Volume 496: debated on Wednesday 15 July 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how many flying hours were completed by Tornado aircraft in each of the last 10 years. (284991)

I refer the hon. Member to the answer my predecessor gave on 14 May 2009, Official Report, column 14-16MC, to the hon. Member for Woodspring (Dr. Fox) which provides the actual flying hours completed by Tornado aircraft from 2001-02 until 2007-08. Information prior to 2001-02 is not held centrally and could be provided only at disproportionate cost. The actual flying hours completed for 2008-09 are:
