holding answer 26 November 2001, pursuant to the reply, 5 December 2001, c. 342

With reference to the number of depleted uranium projectiles fired in Scotland in each of the last 10 years, it has been brought to our attention that there is a typographical error against the figure quoted for 1994. The correct figure should read 455 and not 4,555. All other information contained within my reply of this date is correct.
