Afghanistan: Reconstruction

Volume 481: debated on Monday 20 October 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence in which (a) reconstruction and (b) aid projects British armed forces are participating in Afghanistan. (225940)

British troops are not routinely engaged in the distribution of humanitarian aid in Afghanistan. However, they do run or participate in a wide range of reconstruction projects, for details of which I refer the hon. Member to the answer given by my ministerial colleague, the right hon. Member for Coventry, North-East (Mr. Ainsworth), on 1 September 2008, Official Report, column 1438W, to the hon. Member for Woodspring (Dr. Fox).
