HC Deb 14 July 1997 vol 298 c72W
Dr. Tonge

To ask the President of the Board of Trade if she will seek legal advice as to the consequences of revoking the export licences for Hawk jets, Alvis armoured vehicles and GKN water cannons not yet delivered to Indonesia and make such legal advice available to the House. [6322]

Mrs. Roche

[holding answer 3 July 1997]: Advice has been sought on the lawfulness of the possible revocation of licences for the export of Alvis armoured vehicles and police vehicles from Procurement Services International (including water cannon), not yet delivered to Indonesia.

It has not been the usual practice of successive Governments to make available to the House legal advice received in any area.
