holding answer 19 July 2011

It will not be possible to answer this question definitively until after the operation is complete as the numbers of personnel involved in Operation Ellamy may vary considerably day to day. The extension of the operational allowance (OA) to personnel on Operation Ellamy, based on the OA rate of £29.02 per day, is estimated to cost in the region of £90,000 per month per hundred qualifying personnel.
