HC Deb 11 March 1996 vol 273 cc422-3W
Mr. Alton

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make it his policy to support the introduction of international trade sanctions against Iran. [19762]

Mr. Hanley

We have a number of serious concerns about Iranian policy which we and our European Union partners make clear to the Iranian Government. Exports to Iran are strictly controlled. But we do not believe that an international trade embargo would be practicable.
