HC Deb 06 December 1982 vol 33 c333W
Mr. Dalyell

asked the Prime Minister pursuant to her answer of 25 November, Official Report, c. 549, on what she bases her judgment that the French already have sufficient Exocet components to complete their deliveries to Argentina under existing contracts which were interrupted at the time of the Falklands conflict.

The Prime Minister

It is normal practice for manufacturers to order sufficient components to fulfil known contracts.
