HL Deb 19 March 1998 vol 587 c215WA
Lord Grenfell

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether there have been any new exceptions to the arms embargo on Argentina. [HL1103]

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

We have recently granted an exception to the embargo relating to the sale of spare parts for the Argentine icebreaker, the "Almirante Irizar". This represents an exception but not a change to the embargo.
