asked Her Majesty's Government:

What representations they have received from the Government of Saudi Arabia concerning the investigation by the Serious Fraud Office of possible corruption in relation to the Al Yamamah arms deals; and what was their response. [HL538]

The Government are in frequent and regular contact with the Government of Saudi Arabia as part of the normal conduct of our close bilateral relationship across a wide range of issues of mutual concern.
