Afghanistan (Force Protection)
Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government
Dan Jarvis (Barnsley Central, Labour)
I send my condolences to the families of the fallen soldiers from the 3 Yorks.
Will the Secretary of State give an assurance that all possible measures are in place to ensure that the most effective vetting takes place of those who seek to serve in the Afghan national security forces? I appreciate the difficulties and complexities of this specialised work but seek his assurance that sufficient resource has been made available to ensure that, where possible, those intent on causing our soldiers harm are not given the opportunity to do so.
