To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, pursuant to the Answer of 10 September 2015 to Question 8447 and the Answer of 15 April 2013 to Question 150468, for what reasons providing the number of RAF visits to schools in a disaggregated format for Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales and England is now only possible at disproportionate cost; and if he will make a statement.

Mr Philip Dunne

To provide data for each of the individual countries of the United Kingdom would have required a manual search of records at each Armed Forces Careers Office. These searches would have taken several days to complete and therefore, would have incurred disproportionate cost.
