I have not had any recent discussions with the Iraqi government regarding the amount the UK plans to provide through the Conflict, Stability and Security Fund (CSSF). However, Embassy officials regularly discuss our CSSF work with their counterparts in the Iraqi government.

In financial year 16/17 the Iraq CSSF programme plans to spend £25.25m on a range of projects designed to help stabilise areas liberated from Daesh and provide a safe environment for displaced people to return home; support political reform and reconciliation and; provide strategic communications support to the Government of Iraq campaign to defeat Daesh. These complement the British Government's existing and significant political, humanitarian and coalition Counter-Daesh efforts.
