holding answer 16 July 2012

The number of staff working on the delivery of urgent operational requirements (UORs) will vary depending upon the number and complexity of UORs that are in progress at any particular time. Currently, there are approximately 455 full-time equivalent Defence equipment & support personnel employed in their delivery. Additional personnel across the Ministry of Defence are engaged in ongoing support to equipment delivered through the UOR process including the provision of technical advice, inspection, integration, testing and pre-deployment training. The additional number of personnel engaged in these activities could be provided only at disproportionate cost.
