Mary Creagh – 2016 Parliamentary Question to the Ministry of Defence

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Mary Creagh on 2016-01-08.

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, in which countries British military personnel are embedded.

Michael Fallon

I refer the hon. Member to my written ministerial statement of 17 December 2015, (Official Report, column 98WS) which sets out that we only centrally collate data on embedded forces with those nations with whom UK forces are embedded on operations, and to my letter of 6 January 2016 explaining that I am unable to specify the exact locations of UK personnel because this risks their personal security and the security of Allies’ operations.
