HC Deb 02 November 1987 vol 121 c500W
Mr. Dalyell

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster if he will make a statement on his investigation into the alleged illegal export of mines and other arms to Iran by Mr. Ben Banerjee and BR and W Industries.

Mr. Butcher

I refer the hon. Member to the reply by my hon. Friend the Minister for Trade in theOfficial Report of 21 October, column 811, to his similar question. I am not aware of any breach of United Kingdom Government export control regulations by Mr. Ben Banerjee or BR and W Industries and therefore no investigation is taking place.
