Mr. Home Robertson

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what is the planned peacetime establishment of the five artillery regiments to be equipped with the AS90 self-propelled gun; what is the present establishment of an artillery regiment equipped with 150 mm Abbot or M109 guns; how many of the guns in each battery will be manned in peacetime; when the decision was taken not to man complete batteries in peacetime; when and how it was announced; how the batteries will be brought up to full strength; what are the annual manpower and related savings of partial manning; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Archie Hamilton

It is not the practice to disclose details of unit establishments.
