To ask the Secretary of State for Defence pursuant to the answer to my hon. Friend the Member for Hammersmith and Fulham of 11 February 2009, Official Report, column 1994W, on departmental training, what form the pre-deployment training took; where it was held; how much it cost; and which Ministers undertook it. (260560)

All current Defence Ministers have received mandatory briefings on safety and security and survival, evasion, resistance and extraction prior to visiting operational theatres. The training took place in central London. Details of the small additional costs, relating only to travel and subsistence for the trainers, are not held centrally.
