HC Deb 07 February 1983 vol 36 cc275-6W
Mr. Dalyell

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will place in the Official Report the full text of his complaint to the Government of West Germany about their sale of the frigate Admiral Brown, powered by Rolls-Royce engines, to Argentina.

Mr. Onslow

The contract for the Almirante Brown was placed several years ago. As my right hon. Friend the then Secretary of State for Defence told the House on 22 November 1982—[Vol. 32, c. 584–86]—since the Falklands crisis we have made clear to the German Government that we would be concerned about early delivery of frigates to Argentina. No text is available.
