Lord Chalfont

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether delivery of the special operations configured Boeing Chinook Mk III helicopters has been delayed; and, if so, what is the reason for the delay. [HL3624]

The Minister of State, Ministry of Defence (Baroness Symons of Vernham Dean)

There has been a short delay in the delivery of the Chinook Mk III to allow work to ensure that some advanced equipment, including the computer driven "glass" cockpit, perform fully to specification.
