As I (Minister Wheeler) set out in my Oral Statement of 9 January, we deployed a team of UK experts to Australia which returned to the UK on 16 January.
The team included a senior member of UK Fire and Rescue Service, a medical specialist in trauma and mental health, and a military liaison officer specialising in crisis response.
They have been working with Australian counterparts to establish what further UK support will be of most use to Australian emergency responders, and ensure that such contributions are fully integrated with Australian efforts. At this stage the Australian government has made no specific requests for assistance however we are exploring areas where we can offer assistance.
