HL Deb 21 February 2005 vol 669 c171WA
Lord Astor of Hever

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they will place in the Library of the House documents relating to the number of B vehicles required by the British Army. [HL1168]

Lord Bach

The total fleet requirement (TFR) for Army B vehicles in 2004 was as follows: 13,008 Land Rovers; 2,413 drops; 7,893 cargo trucks; 934 fuel trucks; and 898 ambulances. The Army's TFR criteria are based on the sum of the following six discrete elements: the most demanding defence operational liability; the irreducible training minimum; operational stocks; permanently committed forces; repair pool; and peacetime attritional reserve.
