Baroness Taylor, Minister for International Defence and Security, has revealed that since 2007, 12 interpreters have been killed while working with United Kingdom forces in Afghanistan.

The information came in a written answer to a question from Lord Moonie.

Parliament is in recess until October 12.

Baroness Taylor said that information on interpreters who have been seriously wounded while working with British forces in Afghanistan “is not held centrally and could only be provided at disproportionate cost”.

In another written answer Baroness Taylor said she could not provide statistics on the fatalities suffered by the UK’s allies and partners in Afghanistan.

“We do not comment on fatalities and casualties suffered by other nations, which are matters for the countries concerned,” she said.
