Volume 691: debated on Monday 16 April 2007

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What steps they are taking to prevent anti-social behaviour towards local residents in Cyprus by British military personnel. [HL2996]

British Forces Cyprus has a robust discipline policy with respect to anti-social behaviour which is reviewed every six months. The policy implements out of bounds areas to all British military personnel, and all visiting troops are confined to the sovereign base areas. Those who breach this policy and are caught are dealt with appropriately. In addition, all personnel are briefed on the importance of maintaining good relations with the Republic of Cyprus and its residents.
