International Security Assistance Force

Volume 487: debated on Monday 2 February 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what recent discussions he has had with his NATO counterparts on sourcing the requirement for International Security Assistance Force’s Operational Reserve Force; and if he will make a statement. (249743)

I have had numerous discussions with my NATO counterparts on the subject of troops contributions. Through the force generation process, NATO is working to fill the Operational Reserve Force for ISAF. This requirement was identified on NATO’s Combined Statement of Requirement in 2006. There are in-theatre reserves available.
