Iraq

Volume 450: debated on Wednesday 25 October 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence whether US Government officials have paid sums to British forces in connection with operations in Iraq. (95220)

US Government officials do not pay sums to British forces in connection with operations in Iraq. Coalition partners do share logistical support but where payment is required for these activities, it is provided on a repayment basis.

The UK does have access to US Commander’s Emergency Response Programme (CERPs) funding. Resources drawn from this are, however, allocated directly to certain reconstruction projects in MND(SE).
