§ Lord Hylton
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether they will immediately suspend deliveries of military supplies to Turkey until that country has withdrawn its army from Iraq.
§ Baroness Chalker of Wallasey
Turkey is a NATO ally with legitimate defence requirements. Proposed UK arms sales to Turkey are subject to stringent licensing procedures. We do not grant licences for the sale of equipment which we believe is likely to be used for internal repression.
