HC Deb 13 May 1948 vol 450 c242W
Mr. Bossom

asked the Minister of Supply to which countries we are selling the parachutes which are at this time not being allocated to our own Services.

Mr. G. R. Strauss

Since the end of the war surplus parachutes have been transferred to the Governments of the following countries: Belgium, Czechoslovakia, Denmark, France, Greece, Holland, Norway, and Persia. Parachutes do not require an export licence and I regret, therefore, that I am unable to give details of commercial transactions.
