To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, with reference to The Guardian report on 18 June 2019 on alleged UK military involvement in Yemen, whether the UK is a party to the conflict in Yemen.
24 June 2019
The UK is not part of the coalition operating in Yemen and the UK has no role in setting coalition policy. Our assistance is limited to addressing the specific threats faced by the Saudis. We are providing information, advice and training to help Saudi Arabia respond to these threats. We have also shared techniques with the Saudis for minimising civilian casualties. The UK has a range of British personnel deployed across the region, but all remain under British command and control.
