HC Deb 11 October 1976 vol 917 cc27-8W
Mr. Hoyle

asked the Secretary of State for Defence why a distributor of foreign cars is being given facilities to advertise Russian cars, at attractive terms, on notice boards at Army camps.

Mr. Robert C. Brown

Goods and services are advertised on notice boards at Army camps at the discretion of commanding officers. There is no regulation that forbids the advertisement of foreign goods or services, and it is unlikely that a commanding officer would discriminate against an advertisement solely because it concerned a foreign product.
