§ 20. Sir Anthony Royle
asked the Secretary of State for Defence if he will list the number of present members of Her Majesty's Armed Forces now currently assigned or seconded to Brunei, Hong Kong, Iran, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates; what are the ranks of these personnel; and what are their individual tasks in the host country's armed forces.
§ Dr. Gilbert
The number of personnel serving with the forces of these countries was given in my answer to my hon. Friend the hon. Member for Harlow (Mr. Newens) on 31st January; it is not our practice to give precise details of ranks and tasks.—[Vol. 943 cc.142–3.]
