Defence is providing assistance as a part of a Home Office-led operation, therefore the ultimate assessment of its effectiveness will lie with them as the lead department. The Ministry of Defence and the Home Office will work together to ensure that all requests for Defence support continue to be delivered according to the principles of Military Aid to the Civil Authorities.
