§ Mr. Gerald Howarth
To ask the Secretary of State for Defence whether British Forces will be subject to Iraqi law following the handover of power on 30 June 2004. 
§ Mr. Hoon
Following the assumption of authority by the Iraqi Interim Government on 30 June, the intention is that the Multi-National Force including United Kingdom forces will continue to be granted immunity from prosecution under local law. The precise means of achieving this are still under consideration. Members of the Multi-National Force will continue to be subject to the jurisdiction of their sending states.
§ Mr. Ingram
The United Kingdom's only detention facility in Shaibah is currently being run by 1st Regiment Royal Highland Fusiliers, with members of the Military Provost, who report to the Commander Multi-National Division (South East).
