Dear Ministry of Defence,

Had HMS Cumberland been unavailable for deployment to Libya
during the current disturbances in that country what alternative resources, capable of undertaking a comparable role as that played by HMS Cumberland, did the MoD have available to deploy at short notice? Please could you release any documents which show the position of these alternatives at the time HMS Cumberland was first deployed. Can you also release any documents which show where these alternatives are currently located. If possible could you also provide figures for the cost of deploying any of these alternatives, where possible could you release any documents upon which this figure was based.
Thank you very much.

Yours faithfully,

Harry Raffal

Thank you for the information you have so far provided. Is it possible for the current position of the alternatives provided in images 1-3? I appreciate releasing the exact position for some may not be possible for security reasons. Where this is the case I would be obliged if you could provide at least a general location.
