To ask Her Majesty's Government what estimate they have made of the number of tyres fitted in single formation which are in use on vehicles used by the Ministry of Defence; and what estimate they have made of the cost in each of the next 10 years of replacing tyres that are 10 or more years old.

Details on the number of tyres fitted in single formation on vehicles used by the Ministry of Defence are not held centrally and could be provided only at disproportionate cost. No estimate of the cost of replacing tyres that are 10 or more years old has been made. All vehicles are maintained and serviced regularly, at which time tyres are replaced if they do not meet minimum legal and safety standards.
