HC Deb 13 April 1983 vol 40 c411W
41. Mr. Dan Jones

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what evidence he has that lethal weapons from the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation countries have become available to Iran or Iraq.

Mr. Hurd

Iran and Iraq receive arms supplies from a number of countries. The supply of arms is a matter for individual Governments. We are neutral in the war between Iran and Iraq and have not supplied lethal equipment to either side.
