HL Deb 29 April 1998 vol 589 c27WA
Lord Lofthouse of Pontefract

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether there have been any new exceptions to the embargo Argentina. [HL1683]

The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Foreign and Commonwealth Office (Baroness Symons of Vernham Dean)

We have recently granted an exception to the embargo to allow the sale of a further 110 NBC suits and 110 pairs of boots for use by the Argentine contingent of the UN task force in Kuwait. This is an exception but not a change to the embargo.
