HC Deb 30 January 1957 vol 563 c180W
83. Mr. G. Brown

asked the Minister of Defence whether he is aware that large German armament orders have been placed in Britain; and what effect these are likely to have on the time-table for the re-equipment and modernisation of our own forces.

Mr. Hare

I have been asked to reply.

Negotiations for the sale of various kinds of military equipment to Germany are going on, but few firm orders have been received so far. Neither these nor those in prospect will adversely affect our own orders.
