star this property answer text <p>The UK and Nigeria share a deep and long-standing Defence Partnership. During my visit I was able to explore the challenges that our Nigerian partners are facing and understand better how the UK might assist further in tackling the insidious and pervasive threat posed by violent extremist organisations in the north east. Promoting the UK Defence contribution to Women, Peace, and Security was central to the visit, and I was able to meet with non-government organisations and better understand the particular impact of the conflict on women and girls. The UK will continue to work with the Nigerian Armed Forces to promote Women, Peace and Security through training, advisory support, and sharing of experience. I also witnessed first-hand some of the world class training in countering the threat from improvised explosive devices being delivered by British military personnel to their Nigerian counterparts, and I was pleased to be able to gift a range of specialist Counter-Improvised Explosive Device equipment worth c£775,000 to the Nigerian Army to help them in their fight against terrorism, by tackling terrorism abroad we can better protect our security at home.</p>

star this property answer text <p>I want to make sure that all those who want a civil marriage, civil partnerships and same-sex marriage in the Armed Forces receive the same treatment as their counterparts who wish to marry in religious ceremonies. That is why I have asked the Department to look into all options on making this a reality and have written to the Ministry of Justice and the Minister for Women and Equalities pushing this issue. The relevant legislation should be changed so that all members of the Armed Forces whether they want religious ceremonies, civil partnerships or marriage, or same-sex marriage are treated equally.</p><p>The Department conducted a pilot project in 2016, under the Minister of the Armed Forces, to consider the feasibility of using the MOD estate to host the registration of civil marriages or partnerships. This pilot identified a change was required to the relevant legislation to deliver this ambition. The current legislation does not allow for the MOD sites to limit who is married, and who attends civil marriages, civil partnerships and same-sex marriages; this presents difficulties in protecting security of MOD sites. The Department is working on how we fix this anomaly and have written asking for legislative change.</p><p>Meanwhile, more widely in the Armed Forces I am determined that the MOD should continue to be a leader in supporting the LGBT community, and to build on the strong progress to date. We continue to strive to be an employer of choice and are working hard to improve the culture within defence to ensure that we attract and retain diverse talent, including those from the LGBT community. Indeed, I was delighted the MOD was recently recognised in the Stonewall Workplace Equality Index 2019, in which all three services have been placed in the Top 100 LGBT inclusive employers listing.</p><p>In 2014, we made provision to allow the marriages of same sex couples in military chapels, for those with demonstrable link to the Armed Forces and provided that the chaplain and the chaplain's Sending Church agreed. At present only the United Reformed Church (URC) permits its chaplains to conduct such marriages, and the first religious marriage of a same sex couple on Defence site took place at St Barbara's Church, HMS Excellent, Whale Island, Portsmouth in 2017.</p>
