Mr. Touhig: The Commonwealth War Graves Commission continues its important work worldwide in maintaining around one and three quarter million war graves and memorial commemorations to Commonwealth Service men and women who died in the two world wars.
We work closely with regimental associations and other interested parties to ensure that memorials in buildings being redeveloped are either incorporated within the refurbished building or moved to a suitable new location.
Malcolm Bruce: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence whether the Defence Export Service Organisation maintains records in its (a) UK offices and (b) overseas offices of the occasions on which it has provided lists of agents to customers. 
Mr. Ingram: The Defence Export Services Organisation occasionally receives requests for lists of agents. When received, such requests are treated in the same way as other routine requests for information, responses to which are not, in general, put on the record.
The Investment Approvals Board considers proposals for major investments in equipment, estates, support and business change projects and, where appropriate, makes recommendations to Ministers as to whether such investments should be approved. Recommendations take the form of submissions to Ministers or, for lower value projects, advice within their delegated powers to project owners to proceed or otherwise. There is no Investment Appraisals Board.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence on how many occasions white phosphorus weapons have been used by British forces during the invasion and occupation of Iraq; and at what level of command their use was authorised. 
John Reid: British armed forces have used white phosphorus on Operation Telic in Iraq primarily as a smoke screen to provide cover and thus protection for our soldiers, or for target illumination. Its use in Iraq is a tactical decision authorised by commanders on the ground. Although white phosphorus does have a recognised anti-personnel effect, our armed forces go to great lengths to ensure that civilian and non-combatants are not harmed during operations; guidelines issued to British military personnel on its use emphasise that it should not be deployed as an anti-personnel weapon. Information on the number of occasions it has been used by British armed forces in Iraq is not held centrally and could only be provided at disproportionate cost.
