To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what his policy is on funding standard operational requirements for kit and equipment for the armed forces.

The core Equipment Programme, funded from the Defence budget, delivers the capabilities our armed forces need now and in the future against a range of contingencies and threats. Priorities are reviewed regularly as part of the Ministry of Defence's annual planning round. In addition, Urgent Operational Requirements respond to urgent requirements specific to particular operational theatres and are funded by the Treasury Reserve.

Nice to see Mr D asking questions about our men and women of the forces instead of worrying about terrorists and their treatment.
