To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, whether the matter of UK pilots providing training for the Chinese Air Force was raised during his visit to the United States.

I did not raise this specific issue. During the visit, I discussed a wide range of shared threats and global challenges with US counterparts. However, the issue of serving and former UK Service Personnel providing training to People's Liberation Army pilots remains of utmost importance and the Ministry of Defence is taking decisive steps to deter such activity.
