HC Deb 02 March 1999 vol 326 c663W
Mr. Hancock

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what assessment he has made of the jungle training exercise in Brunei carried out between 1 April 1997 and 31 March 1998. [72790]

Mr. Spellar

These exercises provide necessary training for jungle warfare instructors and for some units who are required to be able to operate safely in a jungle environment as part of their operational role. I understand that these exercises, which are individually assessed by the Army authorities, are regarded as having satisfied the purposes for which they were mounted.

Forward to
