HC Deb 21 December 1988 vol 144 c267W
Mr. Cohen

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether he has information, which he can publish in a form that does not jeopardise national security, which indicates the volume of weapons allegedly supplied by Libya to the Irish Republican Army before and after the bombing of Libya by the United States of America; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Waldegrave

It would not be in the national interest to disclose detailed information of this nature. However, we have good reason to believe that substantial volumes of weaponry were supplied by Libya to the Provisional Irish Republican Army both before and after the United States bombing of Libya.
