asked Her Majesty's Government:
How many military personnel are currently serving in Kenya; and whether there are any proposals to increase that number.
There are currently 62 permanent staff serving in Kenya. These are split between several roles including: the Defence Section in the High Commission; the British Peace Support Team—East Africa (BPST-EA); and the British Army Training Unit Kenya (BATUK). BATUK includes 13 permanent staff and 28 augmentees on six-month postings; we are currently reviewing this, and no decisions have been made.
