Afghanistan: Peacekeeping Operations

Volume 477: debated on Friday 20 June 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what the estimated cost to his Department is of providing care and support to troops injured during service in (a) Afghanistan and (b) Iraq in 2008-09. (209612)

The net additional costs of operations are recovered from the Treasury Reserve. The highly changeable nature of operations means that we are not able to provide accurate forecast costs for specific elements of operations for 2008-09. Our initial estimate of the net additional costs for operations in Iraq and Afghanistan, for 2008-09, will be published in winter supplementary estimates.
