HC Deb 20 June 1995 vol 262 c238W
Dr. David Clark

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what assessment has been made by his Department on the source of arms used by the Iranian Government during the Iran-Iraq war; and if he will make a statement. [29470]

Mr. Freeman

My Department broadly agrees with the assessment contained in the 1987 edition of the SIPRI Yearbook on World Armament and Disarmament, which shows that some 40 countries supplied arms to Iran during 1980–86.
