Arms Trade: BAE Systems

Volume 687: debated on Thursday 7 December 2006

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What representations the Attorney-General has received from BAE Systems, or from solicitors acting on its behalf, to block the investigations by the Serious Fraud Office into alleged corrupt payments made to secure arms deals with Saudi Arabia; and what response was made. [HL359]

I have received certain representations from BAE Systems in relation to this case. The SFO investigation into the case is still live and it would not be appropriate to comment further at this stage.
