§ Baroness Cox
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Why the deployment of Alenia Marconi radar-tracking equipment to Sudan was allowed in view of the embargo on the sale of dual-use equipment to Sudan until peace has been brokered. [HL3562]
§ The Minister of State, Foreign and Commonwealth Office (Baroness Symons of Vernham Dean)
The air traffic control system had no military or dual-use rating and did not require an export licence. In any event, the contract has not yet gone ahead.
