UIN 185121, tabled on 29 October 2018

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, pursuant to the Answer of 16 October 2018 to Question 176667 on Uganda: Military Aid, what training and support the Government offers to (a) Uganda's Chieftaincy of Military Intelligence and (b) Uganda's Police Rapid Response Unit.

I can confirm that members of the Ugandan armed forces have received intelligence training provided by the UK, but it is not our practice to comment in detail on the nature of intelligence relationships with other nations. HM Government provides no support to Uganda's Police Rapid Response Unit. As part of our engagement we emphasise the importance of professional forces operating within the framework of international law.
