HC Deb 27 March 1996 vol 274 c636W
Mrs. Clwyd

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence if his Department has advised companies since 1987 on ways to alter descriptions of goods on export applications to ensure that licences are granted, when previous applications for export or transhipment licences for the same goods have been refused. [22971]

Mr. Arbuthnot

I know of no instance where my Department has acted improperly in this manner.
