HL Deb 05 February 1998 vol 585 c123WA
Lord Kirkhill

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether there have been any new exceptions to the arms embargo on Argentina. [HL484]

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 155 NBC suits and 50 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.
