HL Deb 22 July 1980 vol 412 c380WA

asked Her Majesty's Government:

When they will complete their review of the embargo on the sale of arms and equipment to Chile.


Our review of defence sales to Chile is now complete. After careful consideration, we have concluded that the total embargo imposed by the last Government on such sales should now be lifted. Henceforward, applications for export licences for the supply of defence equipment to Chile will be treated in the normal way.

House adjourned at half-past eleven o'clock.
