HL Deb 10 December 1998 vol 595 cc101-2WA
Lord Berkeley

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether there have been any new exceptions to the arms embargo in Argentina. [HL242]

Baroness Symons of Vernham Dean

A licence has recently been issued to allow the export of nine sets of gun rings and smoke grenade launchers to be mounted on armoured personnel carriers in service with the Argentine contingent of the UN forces in Cyprus. This decision represented an exception but not a change to the arms embargo on Argentina.
