HC Deb 09 February 1978 vol 943 c647W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for Trade what is Her Majesty's Government's policy with regard to trade with Uganda in the light of the export of 3,000 Friesian cattle from Great Britain to Entebbe.

Mr. Meacher

Arms and ammunition may not be exported to Uganda. As my hon. Friend the Minister of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs told the House on 25th January, it would be a very serious course to embark on full scale trade sanctions, and no special restrictions are placed on civil trade with Uganda.
