Mr. Key

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what plans he has to deploy(a) HMS 'Ocean' and (b) other RN ships to Mozambique. [112970]

Mr. Hoon

We have diverted the Royal Fleet Auxiliary Fort George from the Gulf. The ship is currently en route to Mozambique to assist in the international relief effort; we have no plans to divert HMS 'Ocean' or other RN ships at this time.
