HC Deb 25 November 1982 vol 32 cc547-8W
Mr. George

asked the Prime Minister if she will take steps to ensure that no British equipment capable of military application reaches Argentina.

The Prime Minister

Our own embargo on the direct supply of military equipment to Argentina remains in force. Some of our allies have felt obliged to lift their own embargoes and honour existing contracts. Where these contracts incorporate British equipment it has not always proved feasible or appropriate to embargo them.
