§ Lord Tebbit
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether the European Rapid Reaction Force could be made available to assist the civil power in the event or serious disorder within a member state of the European Union. [HL2009]
§ Baroness Ramsay of Cartvale
There will be no standing European Rapid Reaction Force. The European security and defence policy will enable the European Union to conduct EU-led military operations in response to international crises in support of the common foreign and security policy.
