HL Deb 14 December 1987 vol 491 c591WA
Lord Graham of Edmonton

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether an export licence is required for equipment built or designed for the sole purpose of carrying out the death penalty; and if so whether they will refuse such a licence for a British company which recently constructed a double and single gallows for a Middle Eastern country and for the export of any such equipment in future.

The Secretary of State for Trade and Industry (Lord Young of Graffham)

My Lords, an export licence is not required for the export of such equipment.
