Iraq: Armed Forces

Volume 688: debated on Monday 8 January 2007

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What recent representations they have received from United Kingdom families regarding the return of forces personnel serving in Iraq; and what response they gave. [HL363]

We receive a considerable volume of correspondence from members of the public who have family members serving in Iraq. Their letters cover a wide range of issues. We prepare bespoke replies to each correspondence but consistently recognise our forces’ contribution and confirm the requirement for UK forces to remain in Iraq until we have completed the task in hand.
