I refer the hon. Member to HCWS260, the written statement I laid in this House on Monday 6 September which provided a comprehensive update on the Armoured Cavalry (Ajax) programme. As I stated, extensive work has been undertaken on the Health and Safety aspects of the Noise and Vibration concerns raised on Ajax. A report is being undertaken independently of the Ajax Delivery Team by the MOD’s Director of Health and Safety. I will publish this report once it is finalised, which will contain a full timeline in relation to Health and Safety issues.
