The National Roadside Repair and Recovery (NRRR) service covers all MOD owned and registered category A and B platforms. Category A is inclusive of wheeled and tracked armoured vehicles, while category B is inclusive of general logistic vehicles, such as cars, land rovers and logistics platforms.

For the annual cost of the NRRR between 2015 and 2023, I refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave on 16 October 2023 to Question 202849 to the hon. Member for Ellesmere Port and Neston (Mr Madders). The annual cost of the service for 2023/24 was £1,007,611.

The 2018-19 NRRR callout in Morocco was due to the breakdown of a land rover while on a training exercise.

Information on the number of annual callouts by UK region since 2015 is not held centrally and could be provided only at disproportionate cost.
