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.
