HC Deb 23 October 1990 vol 178 cc97-8W
Mr. Adley

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence if he will make a statement on co-ordination in the Gulf between British and Syrian forces.

Mr. Archie Hamilton

Arrangements have been agreed which would enable British forces in Saudi Arabia to operate effectively with Saudi, American or other forces as necessary. 7 Armoured Brigade will, however, be positioned alongside the United States Marines in north-east Saudi Arabia.
