HC Deb 24 January 1956 vol 548 c15W
96. Mr. Lee

asked the Minister of Defence whether he is aware that British tanks sold to private firms in this country as scrap are afterwards resold to the Egyptian Government; how long this practice has been in operation; how many such tanks are known to have reached Egypt; and what action he proposes to take to put an end to the traffic in these and all other types of armaments.

Sir W. Monckton

I would refer the hon. Member to the White Paper on the Export of Surplus War Material (Cmd. 9676) which is to be debated this afternoon.
