To ask Her Majesty’s Government, further to the answer by Lord Ashton of Hyde on 21 April (HL Deb, col 761), whether they will (1) list the location of all Coalition HQs where British forces are embedded, and (2) the number of personnel located at each HQ.

I refer the noble Lord to the written statement of 17 December 2015 (HLWS422). The 94 UK personnel referred to in the written statement are embedded at eight separate coalition headquarters, but I am not able to provide location details as their disclosure would, or would be likely to prejudice the capability, effectiveness or security of the Armed Forces.
