Iraq: Local Assistance

Volume 688: debated on Thursday 25 January 2007

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they acknowledge some responsibility for ensuring the safety and future well-being of Iraqis who have worked for or helped British forces and international and voluntary organisations in Iraq; and, if so, what action they are planning. [HL1210]

For current Iraqi employees we acknowledge and fulfil our responsibilities for safety by providing regular security briefings. Operational circumstances permitting, we may also vary working locations and hours and provide temporary accommodation within military camps. Once individuals leave our employ, however, we are unable to offer any further assistance. We cannot comment on measures offered by other organisations.
