The Ministry of Defence does not separately identify the specific sums from the core budget that will be spent on counter terrorism activities. There are a wide range of capabilities that the MOD holds and similarly a wide range of activities which the MOD undertakes as part of core business that may contribute towards counter terrorism. The majority of MOD counter-terrorism activities are, however, provided in support of other Government Departments, for which it is reimbursed.
