To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what steps the Government has taken to increase capacity building in Eritrea to counter the production and use of forged and fraudulent documents; whether such steps include increasing cooperation with Frontex and Europol; how many British personnel are involved in such activity; and what the cost to the public purse is of that activity.

The UK government works closely with law enforcement agencies in the Horn of Africa, to tackle the threat from organised immigration crime. However, the UK Government is not currently involved in any specific programmes to build capacity in Eritrea with regard to forged and fraudulent documents.
