To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, pursuant to the Answer of 27 May 2015 to Question 207, whether Explosive Risk Management Ltd was contracted to provide counter-IED training in Iraq in 2014; whether a counter-IED course was provided to Kurdish Peshmerga in 2014; and if he will make a statement.

Explosive Risk Management Ltd was contracted to deliver C-IED training in Iraq in 2014. Through these training services, a four week course was delivered to the Peshmerga in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq in 2014. A similar course was due to be delivered in southern Iraq, but was withdrawn prematurely due to security issues.

This contract was not included in my previous answer of 5 June 2015 to Question number 207 as the service was for training not security.
