HC Deb 06 May 1968 vol 764 c26W
Mrs. Lena Jeger

asked the President of the Board of Trade what steps are taken by his Department to ensure that arms exported under licence reach only their stated destination and are not resold.

Mrs. Gwyneth Dunwoody

Export licences for arms supplies are normally granted only in respect of orders placed by Governments or their accredited agents against genuine military requirements. In these circumstances, we have no reason to believe that arms do not reach their stated destination, and we do not place a restriction on their subsequent resale.
