Its eventual placement in the Library of the House would need to include consideration of any operational sensitivities for the UK or partners, in full consultation with the US Navy.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>President Assad retains control of some key areas for the Syrian government but is losing ground to ISIL and a range of armed opposition groups across the country. Assad continues to defy the international community through his barbaric actions, including using artillery and barrel bombs against civilians, some containing chlorine.</p><p>The UK has been at the forefront of the response to the humanitarian crisis in Syria. A political transition as set out in the Geneva communique is more vital than ever. We will be working with the UN Special Envoy and others to help push forward a political process, helping create the right conditions on the ground by supporting the moderate opposition and putting Assad's regime under pressure.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>As the Secretary of State for Defence, my right hon. Friend, the Member for Sevenoaks, (Michael Fallon) reported in his Written Statement of 28 May 2015 (Column 1WS), and as I reiterated during the Adjournment Debate the same day (Column 293), the Royal Navy's investigation into Able Seaman NcNeilly's concerns found most of them to be either factually incorrect or the result of mis- or partial understanding.</p><p>Some of his concerns drew on historical, previously known events, none of which had compromised our deterrent capability and from which, where appropriate, lessons had been learned to develop our procedures as part of a continuous improvement programme.</p><p>Only one of his allegations remains to be fully concluded - that electronic cigarettes were used onboard the submarine. No corroborative evidence that this practice was taking place has been found. The chain of command is considering if certain products may be suitable for use onboard submarines in the future. As I said in the Debate, it is not possible or reasonable to provide complete transparency on all that has been found, as this concerns the protection of the deterrent capability.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The UK is operating as part of a global coalition of over 60 countries - including Iraq, Arab nations, European partners and the US, to defeat ISIL. The UK is playing a leading role in the coalition, with around 800 personnel in the region helping to counter ISIL.</p><p>The UK have conducted the second highest number of strikes in Iraq, behind the US and is providing significant critical enablers in the form of Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) and air to air refuelling capabilities that few other nations possess. We are also providing eight Tornado GR4 Aircraft and a number of Reaper Unmanned Aerial Vehicles contributing to precision strike and ISR.</p><p>Within the coalition's training programme to build the capacity of Iraqi security forces, the UK is co-ordinating Coalition counter-IED (C-IED) training with a small planning team in Baghdad and some 30 military trainers based in Erbil. The UK has trained over 1,100 Iraqi forces in infantry skills and in the use of the UK-gifted heavy machine guns. As well as providing niche C-IED and Infantry Skills trainers, we have also trained 108 Peshmerga in our Protection of Civilians training course.</p>
