§ Mr. McMahon
asked the Minister for Trade (1) how many export licences have been approved for the export of SAl22 and SAl20 shock batons and shock prods;
(2) what information as to the end user is made available to his Department as part of an application for the export of SAl22 and SA120 shock batons and shock prods.
§ Mr. Peter Rees
It is the long standing practice not to disclose information about applications for export licences or licences granted. Before reaching a decision on an application of this kind, my Department would need to see and consider the official order from the overseas Government concerned.
