§ Mr. Wareing
To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how many Iraqi military personnel underwent training in the United Kingdom in each of the years 1981 to 1990 inclusive.
§ Mr. Archie Hamilton
[holding answer 14 January 1991]: Details of military assistance provided to individual countries are normally confidential between Governments. In addition, statistics are normally collected on the number of places allocated to foreign students not on the number of individuals trained, who may attend more than one course. A total 430 places on MOD training courses were allocated to Iraqi students between 1981 and the cessation of training, following Mr. Bazoft's execution, in March 1990.
