star this property answer text <p>The Government is determined to protect the Armed Forces against improper legal claims. That is why we asked the Solicitors Regulation Authority to investigate solicitor Phil Shiner, who was struck off earlier this year for dishonesty. In respect of Northern Ireland, the Defence Secretary is working closely with the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland to ensure that the approach taken to address Northern Ireland's past is fair, balanced, and proportionate and that veterans are fully supported throughout.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The UK and Poland have a strong bilateral relationship; we have approximately 150 UK troops deployed to Poland on a persistent basis as part of enhanced Forward Presence. We are both important members of NATO. The UK/Poland bilateral Defence Cooperation Treaty will provide a framework for collaboration that is complementary to our work in NATO but in no way supersedes it. We have other bilateral treaties with NATO Allies, such as France, which work in a similar manner.</p> more like this

A priority for the MOD is to support the Foreign and Commonwealth Office in fulfilling our commitments as a proactive State Party to the CCW. MOD participation will allow us to share our thinking on autonomy, notably as set out in the recently published Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) doctrine note. This forms part of our efforts to build improved understanding at the international level in the debate on Armed Forces' use of remote and automated systems.</p> more like this
