ISC Report

Asked further about one of the soldiers killed in Afghanistan who came from Northern Ireland, and whether our military resources in Afghanistan were too stretched, the PMOS said that he was not going to talk about the individual, but the Prime Minister had paid tribute in a very fulsome way, as did other leaders in the House of Commons yesterday afternoon. With regards to the resources, the PMOS pointed people to what General Ward had said. General Ward had said that he believed that we did have adequate military resources on the ground, and as the PMOS had said yesterday, it was the commanders on the ground who made the operational decisions about we needed. We had approached this mission very carefully; Des Browne had been out to Afghanistan to look at the operation.
