HC Deb 19 December 1975 vol 902 c888W
Mr. Newens

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs how many British subjects are at present working on defence projects in Saudi Arabia.

Mr. Ennals

A small British military mission assists the Saudia Arabian National Guard at Riyadh. A Ministry of Defence team supervises the Saudi air defence assistance project—SADAP—in conjunction with a number of seconded RAF personnel and a team of British Aircraft Corporation employees. In all, about 1,800 British subjects are involved. Other British civilians are engaged on various defence projects in Saudi Arabia but their numbers are not available.
