Question for Ministry of Defence

Net additional costs for the operation are approximately £80million over three years, provided from the Conflict Stability and Security Fund. The deployment is funded using non-ODA and is therefore not affected by the Government's recent announcement to reduce aid spending to 0.5% in 2021.
