The Lord Bishop of Coventry – 2015 Parliamentary Question to the Ministry of Defence

The below Parliamentary question was asked by The Lord Bishop of Coventry on 2015-12-08.

To ask Her Majesty’s Government what is the projected financial cost for this financial year of UK air strikes against Daesh in Syria.

Earl Howe

It is not possible to separate out the costs of military action in Syria from that of wider counter-Daesh operations, due to the inter-related nature of UK military activity. Based on current levels of activity, the net additional cost of increased UK activity in Syria is not expected to rise above the low tens of millions of pounds.
