Israel: Military Aid

Volume 492: debated on Tuesday 12 May 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how much aid was given to Israel for military purposes between 1997 and 2008. (273849)

MOD gave no aid to Israel for military purposes between 1997 and 2008. We do, however, offer places on defence education courses which are paid for by Israel on an attendance basis. Our defence relationship with Israel is in line with HMG's policy in support of the Middle East Peace Process of having a balanced relationship with the Israelis and the Palestinians.
