The figure of £235,668 provided in my answer of 9 January 2017 for total expenditure spent on providing educational training to the Burmese Army as at 21 December was given in error. The correct figure is £305,499.00; the original answer failed to include the costs of a single Defence Academy course delivered during the period. Of the total spend of £305,499 approximately 67% was ODA expenditure
