star this property answer text <p>Mefloquine (commercially known as Lariam) is an effective anti-malarial that is used by many militaries to protect their personnel while on operations. There is no defined caveat from any advisory body in the world that suggests the use of mefloquine should be restricted in military personnel or people who handle weapons.</p><p>Although there is no evidence that mefloquine impairs function, in accordance with guidance from Public Health England, the Civil Aviation Authority and others, the drug is not used by military aircrew. Mefloquine is also not used by divers, as its side effects could potentially be confused with decompression or narcosis events.</p><p>In October 2015, the results were published of a Ministry of Defence questionnaire-based study of anti-malarial use by UK Service personnel training in Kenya during 2012 and 2013. This found that significantly more doxycycline than mefloquine users reported that one or more adverse effects had interfered with their ability to do their job.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Nuclear Warhead Capability Sustainment Programme (NWCSP) commenced following an announcement on 19 July 2005 (Official report col 59WS). The current Senior Responsible Owner is Dr Paul Hollinshead. The key stakeholders in the NWCSP are the Ministry of Defence and the Atomic Weapons Establishment (AWE). Since 1 April 2008, financial planning for AWE has made no distinction between management and operation costs and those associated with the NWCSP. Expenditure at AWE since 2005 is as follows:</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p> </p></td><td><p><strong>£ million at outturn prices</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2005-06</p></td><td><p>493</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2006-07</p></td><td><p>687</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2007-08</p></td><td><p>894</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2008-09</p></td><td><p>800</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2009-10</p></td><td><p>870</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2010-11</p></td><td><p>944</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2011-12</p></td><td><p>941</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2012-13</p></td><td><p>861</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2013-14</p></td><td><p>961</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2014-15</p></td><td><p>998</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p>Spending plans beyond this Parliament will be set as part of the Government’s spending review process.</p><p> </p><p>The NWCSP draws on the skills of all 5,000 AWE employees. No scientists from the US national nuclear weapons laboratories are seconded to the programme, but a US engineer and serviceman are seconded. The information on how many AWE scientists have visited the US national nuclear weapons laboratories as part of the programme is not held centrally and could be provided only at disproportionate cost.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Appendices four and five of Sir Nicholas' Report refer to allegations made in statements to Surrey Police. The hon. Member would need to contact the Home Secretary to establish what action was taken by Surrey Police in response to individual cases.</p><p>The Government's response to Sir Nicholas' Report was published in June 2006, and the Army has already implemented significant changes to the way we train our young people since 1995. We have invested considerably in the provision of welfare support for both those in training and their families. In addition, we now put great priority on training our instructors to ensure that they get the very best from their trainees; our philosophy is very much to 'train in rather than select out'. Our instructor ratios are now greatly improved and, as a minimum, we provide one instructor per 12 trainees during their initial training. All Armed Forces training sites are now subject to independent scrutiny by Ofsted inspectors and their assessments help us to drive continuous improvement. Ofsted's recently published report on 'Duty of Care and Welfare in Armed Forces Initial Training' found all the establishments they visited to be either good or excellent.</p><p>Underpinning all of these changes, the Chief of the General Staff has a very clear zero tolerance of any form of bullying, harassment or discrimination. All allegations of mistreatment are taken very seriously and we encourage any allegation of unacceptable behaviour to be raised to the attention of the Chain of Command to be investigated accordingly and action taken where appropriate. Any allegation of rape and sexual assault, or any other offence which may have a sexual element, must always be referred to the Service Police<strong>. </strong></p>
