To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, pursuant to the Answer of 19 October 2020 to Question 102833 on Saudi Arabia: Overseas Aid, what the names are of the funding streams through which the Government provides funding to the UK armed forces to provide advice, assistance and training to Saudi Arabia; and how much funding was provided by those funding streams in each of the last four financial years.
12 November 2020
Since 2016, the Ministry of Defence has used the Gulf Strategy Fund, Defence Assistance Fund and Integrated Activity Fund to fund UK armed forces to provide advice, assistance and training to Saudi Arabia. Unfortunately, with the limited time at our disposal, we have been unable to calculate accurately the funding streams you have mentioned; however, I will write to the hon. Member to provide a copy of these records as soon as possible.
