HC Deb 17 July 1968 vol 768 c215W
55. Mr. Barnes

asked the Secretary of State for Defence whether the consignment of British armoured fighting vehicles at present being shipped to Nigeria on the Dutch ship "Batu", some of which bear British Army number plates, have been supplied from official stocks from his Department.

Mr. John Morris

Despite the normal policy that details of arms sales are not disclosed, I am prepared to say that the vehicles referred to were supplied from British Army stocks but are not armoured fighting vehicles.
