HC Deb 30 April 1968 vol 763 c171W
Mr. Edward M. Taylor

asked the Secretray of State for Foreign Affairs, if he will take steps to convene an international conference to consider ways and means of limiting the supply of arms to countries with internal strife.

Mr. William Rodgers

No. We would willingly support any feasible measures for the limitation of arms supplies but such a conference would not be effective without the co-operation of all the leading arms exporting countries and unfortunately there is no indication that this support would be forthcoming.
