HC Deb 28 February 1978 vol 945 c172W
46. Sir Anthony Royle

asked the Secretary of State for Defence why it is not the practice to give details of numbers and ranks of personnel serving with the Armed Forces of Brunei, Hong Kong, Iran, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.

Dr. Gilbert

In the interests of relations between Her Majesty's Government and the Governments concerned details of all types of military assistance to foreign Governments are treated as confidential. There has been no change in long-standing practice in this respect.
