To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how many British military personnel are serving at the headquarters of the International Security Assistance Force. (92519)

As of 26 September there were 821 British military personnel at Headquarters ISAF in Afghanistan. This number will fluctuate subject to usual operational factors, such as leave and post rotations.

The number of British military personnel will decrease significantly when the UK relinquishes the leadership of ISAF Headquarters in February next year.
