Lord Vivian

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Which British troops will be sent to the Provincial Reconstruction Team in Mazar-i-Sharif, Afganistan; and how many troops will be involved. [HL4223]

Lord Bach

The final structure of the UK-led Provincial Reconstruction Team currently deploying to Mazar-e-Sharif is not yet fixed. On current plans, we expect the total number of British military personnel eventually deployed to be about 50 strong. They are drawn predominantly from the Second Battalion, The Royal Anglian Regiment.
