answer text <p>We do not recognise the stock number that my noble Friend has quoted. We believe he is referring to NATO Stock Number (NSN) 6210 99 881 5622 which is a light holder fitted to the driver's control panel in the Bulldog FV430 armoured troop carrier. The maximum wattage bulb that is cleared for use with this item is 2.5W.</p><p>The Defence Equipment &amp; Support Stock Control System contains an indicative price of £70.11 (VAT Ex) for this NSN and as at 7 December 2015 there were 175 in stock. Over the previous 36 months a total of 216 of these items have been issued.</p> more like this

answer text <p>We do not disclose the readiness state of individual ships for operational security reasons, as this would, or would be likely to, prejudice the capability, effectiveness or security of the Armed Forces. HMS DEFENDER is currently deployed on operations in the Gulf. All Royal Navy ships rotate through planned operating cycles involving routine maintenance, repair, training, deployment, leave, essential modification and upgrades and will, therefore, be at varying levels of readiness in accordance with Defence requirements.</p> more like this

answer text <p>Under the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998, dutyholders (employers and the self-employed) have a statutory duty to have lifting equipment for use at work (including cranes and lifts) thoroughly examined by a competent person at time intervals set out in the Regulations. Her Majesty’s Government has no plans to appoint inspectors or fund inspections to deliver these statutory inspections because the legal obligation to ensure safety rests with the person who controls the equipment or premises.</p><p> </p><p>Under the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989, dutyholders are obliged to ensure all electrical systems are maintained to ensure the safety of the system. The obligation to maintain only arises if a lack of maintenance could cause danger. The frequency of maintenance is a matter for the judgement of the dutyholder. Her Majesty’s Government has no plans to change the legislation for the way such maintenance is carried out or appoint inspectors or fund inspections for maintenance.</p><p><strong> </strong></p>

answer text <p>Under Military Aid to Civilian Authority, Defence has made available approximately 250 military fuel tanker drivers and a similar number of support staff, to assist the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy with ensuring the continuity of fuel supplies around Great Britain. As part of ensuring that Defence has a suitably qualified workforce, we train personnel in a variety of different categories of driving licences. This is primarily to enable the safe operation of military vehicles and equipment in worldwide operations and qualified personnel are regularly deployed overseas. It would therefore be misleading to specify numbers of qualified personnel against specific driving license requirements currently held within Defence or specifically in the UK.</p> more like this

answer text <p>To keep bus and lorry drivers on the road, the Government has made temporary provisions to remove the requirement to submit a medical report, which includes questions about eyesight, when applying to renew a bus or lorry driving licence, until further notice. Provided they have no notifiable medical conditions, drivers will be issued a licence that is valid for one year instead of the usual five. This only applies if the licence expired after 1 January 2020 or is due to expire.</p><p>As is always the case, drivers must ensure they are medically fit to drive and they are legally obliged to notify the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency of the onset or worsening of any medical condition.</p><p> </p> more like this
