UIN HL911, tabled on 29 June 2015

To ask Her Majesty’s Government whether they plan to provide for appointing gender advisers on all United Kingdom operations in the next Strategic Defence and Security Review.

Answered on

6 July 2015

The Ministry of Defence deploys gender advisers based on mission-specific requirements. On many missions, for example Afghanistan, the United Kingdom also utilises the services of NATO ally gender advisors. The Ministry of Defence is currently examining the numbers, training and need for military gender advisers but this work is outside the Strategic Defence and Security Review.
