EU Battlegroups

Volume 487: debated on Monday 26 January 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what the cost to his Department of providing Britain’s commitment to the EU Battlegroup was between July and December 2008. (249742)

I refer the hon. Member to the answers my predecessor gave on 16 June 2008, Official Report, column 278W, and 2 June 2008, Official Report, column 681W. The UK EU Battlegroup did not deploy and hence there were no additional deployment-related costs to the UK.
