§ Dr. David Clark
To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, what was the value of goods and equipment reported lost, stolen or missing by each Army command in each year since 1990; and what was the value of any such goods and equipment subsequently recovered as a result of investigations. 
§ Mr. Soames
Total stores losses written off in Army budget areas were as follows:
Value £ thousand 1992–93 Adjutant General 11.5 Quarter Master General 922.1 Assistant Chief of the General Staff 331.3 HQBAOR 1.506.4 CINC UK Land Forces 1.386.6 1993–94 Adjutant General 4.9 Quarter Master General 1.037.0 UK Support Command (Germany) 1,431.7 CINC UK Land Forces 1.724.1 GOC Northern Ireland 316.4 1994–951 Adjutant General 3.0 Quarter Master General 1,199.0 Land Command 1,877.3 GOC Northern Ireland 562.8 1 These figures do not include Germany for which returns arc not yet available.
Figures for earlier years or for recoveries could not he broken down in this way without disproportionate cost. Where, however, recovery is made in the same year as the loss is recorded, the figures are net of recovery.
