Andy Slaughter – 2015 Parliamentary Question to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Andy Slaughter on 2015-10-27.

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, which public organisations are currently holding discussions with Saudi Arabia on carrying out work for that government.

Mr Tobias Ellwood

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office does not collect data on all discussions between public organisations and Saudi Arabia. More broadly however, the British Government cooperates with Saudi Arabia in a large number of areas such as education, energy, security, defence, trade, culture and the challenges facing the Middle East.
