Lib Dems up the pressure on Saudi deal

Liberal Democrat MPs are planning to up the pressure in Parliament over the Government’s controversial decision to drop corruption investigations around the Al Yamamah arms deal with Saudi Arabia.

(As an aside – perhaps action in Parliament will flush out rather more comment from the Conservatives on this issue, who overall have stayed very, very quiet…).

UPDATE: The Liberal Democrat petition calling for an inquiry into the dropping of the Al Yamamah bribery probe can be signed online.
