PMQ on Saudi Arabia

At PMQs on 19 October 2016, Angus Robertson asked Theresa May:

"The Saudi air force is bombing Yemen flying planes that are made in Britain by pilots that are trained by Britain and they are dropping missiles that are made in Britain. I asked her a direct question and she didn't answer it so I can try again for a second time. Can she give this house an assurance that civilians have not been killed by Paveway IV bombs being dropped on Yemen, which are partially manufactured in Scotland under licence by the government? If she doesn't know the answer to that question, how can she possibly in good conscience continue selling them to Saudi Arabia?"

May refused to be drawn on the question, instead calling for a probe into the allegations.[2][3]
