To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, what assessment he has made of the potential merits of appointing an ambassador to the Arctic to represent the Government’s interests in that region.

The Government has consistently noted that such an Ambassador to the Arctic would not add significant value to existing structures and roles currently in place, nor justify the additional costs.
