star this property answer text <p>In my response to previous questions by the Noble Lord, I noted that a lessons learnt process had taken place following the 2017 hurricane season involving a range of Departments of Her Majesty's Government, led by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO). To protect the integrity of this and future lessons learnt processes, the FCO does not propose to make the results externally available. However, the progress made by Departments against actions identified in the lessons learnt exercise was made available to the House in the form of a Written Ministerial Statement on 4 July. On 16 July I held a &quot;drop-in&quot; session for Members of both Houses to discuss hurricane preparation and recovery.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) led an effective and rapid response to the unprecedented impact of Hurricane Irma in the Caribbean. As is standard practice for our response to all crises, a lessons learned process has since taken place led by the FCO and involving a range of Government Departments. To maintain the integrity of future lessons learned processes, we do not propose to share the results of these exercises outside of Government as it is important that the FCO is able to reflect on lessons learned internally as part of our crisis management process. We are now making progress in implementing the actions identified.</p> more like this
