Afghanistan: Helmand Province

Volume 688: debated on Thursday 11 January 2007

asked Her Majesty's Government:

How many of the Reserve Forces deployed to the Helmand province of Afghanistan are volunteer reserves; and how many are regular reserves. [HL745]

The Ministry of Defence does not keep statistics on those deployed specifically in Helmand province because of the extensive internal movements. As at 30 November 2006, some 320 reservists, of whom seven were regular reservists were deployed in the Operation HERRICK (Afghanistan) joint operational area.
