§ Q15. Mr. Philip Noel-Baker
asked the Prime Minister how much foreign exchange the United Kingdom has earned over the last five years by exporting arms to countries in the Middle East; and what was the loss in foreign exchange to the United Kingdom resulting from the Israeli/Arab war.138W
§ The Prime Minister
As to the first part of my right hon. Friend's Question, it is not the practice to disclose information about arms sales to individual countries; as to the second part, I regret that no estimate is possible but the loss already incurred is small.
