The majority of UK military equipment will be returned to the UK. Some equipment may be de-militarised and disposed of in Theatre should it be deemed uneconomical to recover to the UK. Should the Department propose to gift any equipment to the Government of Afghanistan, this will be reported to the House in line with established parliamentary procedure.
