HC Deb 09 July 1964 vol 698 cc131-2W
63. Mr. Swingler

asked the Secretary of State for Industry, Trade and Regional Development to which countries the United Kingdom is at present supplying armaments; to which countries it is Her Majesty's Government's policy to refuse to supply armaments; and if he will give an estimate of the loss of trade incurred by this discrimination.

Mr. D. Price

Arms are not supplied to the Sovietbloc and Far Eastern Communist countries. Applications in respect of other countries are considered in the light of their political, strategic and economic implications. I regret that it is not possible to estimate the effects of our present policies in terms of trade.
