Taiwan: Weapons of Mass Destruction

Question for Ministry of Defence

UIN 47386, tabled on 5 September 2022

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, what assessment his Department has made of Taiwan’s CBRN resilience in light of the recent escalations at the Taiwan border.

Answered on

8 September 2022

The Ministry of Defence (MOD) routinely investigates ways to improve security cooperation and build capacity in CBRN resilience and response with partners across the region, however, in line with Government policy, the MOD has no official relationship with Taiwan's Ministry of National Defense and it would neither be appropriate nor practicable to undertake an assessment of their CBRN resilience.
