HC Deb 15 December 1986 vol 107 cc372-3W
Mr. Alton

asked the Secretary of State for Defence what contracts for radar equipment for sale to Iran have been signed by British companies in the last 12 months.

Mr. Archie Hamilton

It has been the consistent policy of this and previous Administrations not to give details of specific defence exports.

I can, however, confirm that no contracts have been signed for defence equipment which breach the Government's guidelines as set out in the answer given on 29 October 1985 by my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs in reply to a question by the right hon. Member for Tweeddale, Ettrick and Lauderdale (Mr. Steel).
