HC Deb 11 February 1986 vol 91 cc443-4W
33. Mr. McWilliam

asked the Secretary of State for Defence what powers he has under the memorandum of understanding relating to the FH70 system in relation to any of the foreign participants supplying arms or ammunition to a country which is engaged in hostilities against British troops.
