HC Deb 29 April 1976 vol 910 cc157-8W
Mr Trotter

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what evidence he has that vessels conveying arms to Mozambique are calling at British ports en route; and what action he proposes to take.

Mr. Hattersley

None. In any event, although there are exceptions, cargoes that ships in transit retain on board are not ordinarily investigated, provided normal port rules are observed.
