HC Deb 12 May 1980 vol 984 cc322-3W
Mr. Mattel

asked the Secretary of State for Trade what information his Department has as to the number of jobs in British industry that would be at risk if sanctions were imposed against Iran; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Parkinson

The effect of sanctions would depend on their precise scope and on the extent to which exports to Iran can be diverted to other markets.
