§ Mr. Stephen O'Brien
To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what subsidies the UK Government are receiving from foreign allies to fund the continuing involvement of UK forces in Afghanistan. 
§ Mr. Boateng
UK military forces continue to operate in Afghanistan but at a much lower level than during the period of the overthrow of the Taliban and the successful establishment of the International Security Assistance Force. We continue to work in close cooperation with other nations but we are receiving no direct subsidies for our military operations in Afghanistan.
