HC Deb 27 April 1976 vol 910 cc87-8W
Mr. Frank Allaun

asked the Secretary of State for Defence if Government permission was sought and obtained by British Marconi for the contract for several million pounds to refurbish and update the South African defence system.

Mr. Mason

I assume my hon. Friend is referring to the contract for refurbishing the NASSAU early warning system. The export of the necessary items for this refurbishing contract, which was completed in 1971, was allowed by the Government.
