§ Mr. Foulkes
To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how many interceptions of aircraft apparently breaching the Bosnian no-fly zone have been made by Royal Air Force Tornado F3s during Operation Deny Flight; and if he will make a statement on the circumstances of each such interception.
§ Mr. Hanley
Operation Deny Flight is the NATO operation to monitor and enforce the air exclusion zone over Bosnia-Herzegovina. NATO's operational incident statistics for this task are not broken down by national aircraft, nor are separate records kept on the nature of each incident.
