HC Deb 31 May 1968 vol 765 c295W
Mr. Whitaker

asked the Secretary of State for Commonwealth Affairs what requests the Government have received for defence equipment, aid or guarantees from Zambia; and whether he will now grant defence assistance against Rhodesia.

Mr. Whitlock

Defence matters have been discussed between Her Majesty's Government and the Zambian Government on many occasions and we are providing Zambia with defence assistance in the form of a British Joint Services Training Team and a grant available since 1965 for the purchase of defence equipment from this country.
