As my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Defence (Michael Fallon) said in the House on 27 November 2014 (Official Report, columns 1118-1120), the UK's contribution to the NATO Resolute Support Mission will be around 470 personnel. These personnel will remain in Kabul to deliver towards the Train, Advise and Assist function within the Resolute Support Mission. Personnel will be supported by all necessary equipment including an aviation detachment of three Chinook helicopters.
