Written Answers — Ministry of Defence: USA: Military Bases ( 6 Chw 2024)

Written Answers — Ministry of Defence: Israel: Air Force ( 6 Chw 2024)

James Heappey: Nine Israeli Air Force operated planes have taken off and landed from British territory since 7 October. These figures are based on official requests for diplomatic flight clearance that have been submitted by the Israeli Embassy in London, subsequently cleared by Ministry of Defence.

Written Answers — Ministry of Defence: RFA Fort Victoria ( 5 Chw 2024)

James Heappey: Exercise STEADFAST DEFENDER is ongoing, running from January to June this year. The UK's participation will continue to showcase our role as a leading ally within NATO. Approximately 20,000 UK Service personnel are scheduled to participate, supported by eight Royal Navy and Royal Fleet Auxiliary ships and cutting-edge aircraft, such as the F35B. Crucially, our commitments will demonstrate our...

Written Answers — Ministry of Defence: Afghanistan: Refugees ( 2 Chw 2024)

James Heappey: In third countries as of 31 January 2024, there are approximately 635 principal applicants awaiting an eligibility decision, 8,513 principal applicants deemed ineligible for relocation under the ARAP scheme, and 458 eligible principal ARAP applicants awaiting onward travel. Unfortunately, it is not possible to provide a breakdown of these figures according to job role. The Ministry of...

Afghan Relocations: Special Forces ( 1 Chw 2024)

James Heappey: I am grateful for the opportunity to update the House on developments relating to the Afghan relocations and assistance policy scheme, and to answer the specific question raised by the hon. Gentleman in relation to former members of commando force 333 and Afghan territorial force 444. Many colleagues across the House are passionate advocates for applicants to the ARAP scheme—whether they...

Afghan Relocations: Special Forces ( 1 Chw 2024)

James Heappey: I know that the hon. Gentleman, who has been advocating for some cases and is as passionate about the matter as anybody, will feel aggrieved, as will many colleagues around the House. The responsibility of any Minister is to own any failure of process that happens in their Department, and I accept that responsibility. The reality is that these are very difficult decisions to make. The hon....

Afghan Relocations: Special Forces ( 1 Chw 2024)

James Heappey: We certainly will. It is important to mention that the Government of Pakistan have often been the subject of questions in relation to ARAP over the past year or so. In my experience, they have been incredibly co-operative. We are hugely grateful to them for that. The limit on the speed of flow is not any problem with the Government of Pakistan, but the challenge of getting people out of...

Afghan Relocations: Special Forces ( 1 Chw 2024)

James Heappey: To take the hon. Gentleman’s last point first, the MOD is not considering asylum claims, which are a separate matter for the Home Office. The MOD is considering the cases of people who claim to have served alongside UK armed forces. Although I do not doubt the seriousness of the right to asylum, the MOD makes no decisions in that regard. We have no responsibility for that part of...

Afghan Relocations: Special Forces ( 1 Chw 2024)

James Heappey: We think that about 2,000 decisions need to be looked at again. Some of those will be entirely the right decision—they just were not written up and documented particularly well—so it is difficult to say at this moment how many of the cases that we will review will require further scrutiny. What I can say to my hon. Friend is that once we have carried out that initial review of the...

Afghan Relocations: Special Forces ( 1 Chw 2024)

James Heappey: I am grateful for the constructive engagement that the hon. Gentleman has had with the Department ever since the evacuation from Kabul. Our meeting the other day was most instructive, and much of what he said caused us to reflect in the way that we have done. He should take much credit for that. We are working at pace—the hon. Gentleman has my assurance that we will continue to do so, but...

Afghan Relocations: Special Forces ( 1 Chw 2024)

James Heappey: The cases are being looked at urgently. In the wider ARAP cohort that the hon. Member described, that process has been much easier. Some time ago, I directed the excellent officials who work on this, instead of working through the pile of applications, to go to the employment records we hold for interpreters and other locally employed civilians, and to focus on finding them in the pile of...

Afghan Relocations: Special Forces ( 1 Chw 2024)

James Heappey: I will need to write to the hon. Member on that.

Afghan Relocations: Special Forces ( 1 Chw 2024)

James Heappey: These things are discussed regularly, as the hon. Gentleman would imagine. There is an additional route to the United Kingdom in the Afghan citizens resettlement scheme. Indeed, our ARAP and ACRS offer covers all Afghan citizens who served alongside our armed forces or worked alongside our diplomatic missions—or who were simply prominent in Afghan Government and society, and for whom we...

Afghan Relocations: Special Forces ( 1 Chw 2024)

James Heappey: No, I am not going to share that detail with the House, because it is in absolutely nobody’s interests for the Taliban to know how we are doing that.

Afghan Relocations: Special Forces ( 1 Chw 2024)

James Heappey: As I said in response to earlier questions, the interpreters and those who worked alongside us in a supporting function are much easier to find within the pilot applications, because we have the employment records and are therefore able to confirm their service easily. If the hon. Gentleman would like to write to me about the specific cases raised with him, I will endeavour to get him answers...

Written Answers — Ministry of Defence: Pakistan: Refugees ( 1 Chw 2024)

James Heappey: As of 30 January 2024, there are approximately 1,100 Afghan Relocations and Assistance Policy (ARAP) Eligible Principals and their family members awaiting relocation from Pakistan. The Ministry of Defence (MOD) are committed to support the continued relocation of eligible Afghans and their families out of Pakistan, and into the UK, as quickly as possible. To date, we have brought...

Written Answers — Ministry of Defence: Afghanistan: Refugees ( 1 Chw 2024)

James Heappey: Wives and children under 18 of a deceased ARAP-eligible principal applicant are themselves eligible to relocate to the UK under ARAP, provided they can demonstrate that the death of the principal has had a direct impact upon the level of risk they face or their level of vulnerability. This policy is published online and is available on the Gov.uk website at the below link on page 14: ...

Written Answers — Ministry of Defence: Afghanistan: Refugees ( 1 Chw 2024)

James Heappey: As of 30 January 2024, 1,273 Afghan Relocation and Assistance Policy (ARAP) Eligible Principals and their family members have been relocated to the UK from Pakistan since December 2023. Many factors govern the flow of relocation, but we are endeavouring to bring as many eligible Afghans as possible to the UK, as quickly as possible.

Written Answers — Ministry of Defence: Ukraine: Defence Equipment ( 1 Chw 2024)

James Heappey: I am withholding the number of in-service Python as its disclosure would, or would be likely to, prejudice the capability, effectiveness or security of the British Armed Forces. I can confirm however that no Python Minefield Breaching Systems have been Granted in Kind to Ukraine by the UK.
