HC Deb 27 July 1982 vol 28 c497W
18. Mr. Teddy Taylor

asked the Secretary of State for Defence if there have been any recent changes in the arrangements for co-operation and information exchange on defence matters with the Government of Israel; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Pattie

As my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister announced on 13 July—[Vol. 27, c.341]—following discussion amongst the 10 member Governments of the European Community, we are not approving the sale of military equipment to Israel at present. Decisions on other forms of defence co-operation with Israel are being taken on a case by case basis.
