Vernon Coaker response to Michael Fallon’s comments about UK armed forces in Iraq

Vernon Coaker MP, Labour’s Shadow Secretary of State for Defence, responding to Michael Fallon’s comments about UK armed forces in Iraq, said:

“Labour supports the steps taken by the international coalition to assist Iraq’s government in responding to ISIL. It is right that the UK’s Armed Forces continue to provide training and equipment in support of this effort.

“The government should provide clarity about the scale, scope and timeframe of the deployment of these further trainers. The Defence Secretary should clearly outline the numbers of military trainers involved and the work that they will be doing, so that there can be no misunderstanding about the role of British troops in Iraq.”
