HC Deb 29 June 1982 vol 26 c278W
38. Sir Victor Goodhew

asked the Secretary of State for Defence if he will bring forward proposals for international control of the illegal sale of weapons and spare parts therefor.

Mr. Pattie

A United Nations study into conventional weapons will commence in July this year which will cover all aspects of arms sales. It will receive the full support of the Government. In the meantime we believe the United Kingdom's procedures are adequate to control arms sales from this country.
