FOREIGN AFFAIRS – SAUDI ARABIA & RADICAL ISLAMISM – 17 March 2020

Dr Julian Lewis: What is the Government’s latest assessment of the role of Saudi Arabia in promoting radical Islamist doctrines beyond its borders?

[The Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs and First Secretary of State (Dominic Raab): I pay tribute to my right hon. Friend’s expertise in this area. We have raised that issue. There has been a step change and a reduction in the Government promoting that kind of extremism, and we want to ensure that other private sector or charitable bodies are also compliant. We have raised those issues, and I will continue to do so.]
