§ Mr. Keetch
To ask the Secretary of State for Defence pursuant to the answer of 2 March 2004,Official Report, column 792W, on Operation Telic, when each request was filed; whether it was approved; when the equipment arrived in theatre; and if he will make a statement. 
§ Mr. Ingram
[holding answer 15 March 2004]: It is not possible to provide the information requested without explaining in detail the full range of Urgent Operational Requirements considered for operations in Iraq. The full list of such UORs is operationally sensitive and I am therefore withholding it under Exemption 1 of the Code of Practice on Access to Government Information.
§ Adam Price
To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how many cluster bomb-related injuries have been recorded in the British sector of occupied Iraq for each month since the official end of the conflict. 
§ Mr. Ingram
We have no viable means of recording the information requested. We do not hold any information in respect of injured persons not treated by UK forces and even for those treated by UK forces it is frequently not possible to identify the cause of shrapnel injuries.
§ Glenda Jackson
To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how many Iraqis he estimates have been arrested by mistake since the start of the conflict. 
§ Mr. Hoon
When British forces apprehend people suspected of having committed a criminal offence, they are immediately handed over to the Iraq Police Service who arrest, and if appropriate, conduct a prosecution under Iraqi law. We do not hold central records of the outcome of such cases and cannot therefore estimate how many have been prosecuted or the results of such cases. In any event, the fact that an arrest does not ultimately lead to a successful prosecution does not mean that the arrest was either mistaken or unlawful.
§ Mr. Kilfoyle
To ask the Secretary of State for Defence whether US intelligence contractors have had access to prisoners under UK jurisdiction.
