§ Mr. Arthur Lewis
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether he will list the countries to which he has made an approach, since the unprovoked aggression in the Falkland Islands, requesting that these countries should not supply arms and munitions to the Argentines; and what was the nature of the response in each stated instance.
§ Mr. Hurd
The hon. Member will be aware that European Community members, the United States and Canada have all announced a ban on arms sales to Argentina. In addition, approaches have been made to a number of other arms producing nations to seek their co-operation in suspending arms sales to that country.
