To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what assessment he has made of the effectiveness of the UK contribution to Operation Active Endeavour; and if he will make a statement. (116907)

[holding answer 24 January 2007]: Operation Active Endeavour is a maritime focused NATO Counter Terrorism Operation in the Mediterranean. Its importance was reaffirmed at NATO’s Riga Summit in November 2006. As a committed NATO member the UK fully supports the Operation and makes a highly effective contribution. The UK provides a dedicated surface warship for between 2 to 4 months each year and, on an opportunity basis, other assets operating in the Region.
