HC Deb 19 December 1991 vol 201 c285W
Mr. O'Neill

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence if he will list the number and type of transport helicopters deployed with the RAF for each year since 1980.

Mr. Archie Hamilton

This information is not readily available in the form requested. The number and types of transport helicopter deployed by the RAF has not, however, changed significantly since the introduction of the Chinook into RAF service in the early 1980s and thus the numbers are broadly in line with those I gave in my answer on 12 December 1991,Official Report, column 546.
