§ Lord Redesdale
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether either of the two vehicles suspected of involvement in the production of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq was purchased or obtained from the United Kingdom or the United States. [HL3435]
§ The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Ministry of Defence (Lord Bach)
We currently assess that the vehicles were built in Iraq using Iraqi components and standard industrial components that had been obtained from several different countries including the United Kingdom. The components of British origin would not have been restricted under the sanctions regime. Our investigations into the vehicles continue.
