HC Deb 21 December 1989 vol 164 c383W
Mr. Hardy

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence if his Department has had any discussions about defence contracts with or involving the FMC company of the United States of America.

Mr. Alan Clark

My Department has had some discussions with the FMC Company of the United States of America concerning the possible purchase of equipment for the MLRS programme. Our purchases, however, have been made through Prime Contractors, LTV and EPG.

The United Kingdom arm of the company, FMC Corporation UK, is on the defence contractors list. There is no record of any current contract with the company.
