To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, whether he has allocated Official Development Assistance to any programmes that are targeted at supporting women and girls.

We have recently implemented measures to improve the representation of women on these educational programmes, in support of the UK National Action Plan on Women, Peace and Security.
