HC Deb 11 March 2003 vol 401 c160W
Norman Lamb

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement on the role of UK embassies and diplomatic missions overseas in promoting sales of British military equipment.[102384]

Mr. Mike O'Brien

Some of our embassies and diplomatic missions have defence sections who help in promoting the acquisition of British defence equipment, and this is supplemented in a small number of missions by defence sales representatives. Heads of mission and their deputies may give support to this work as appropriate.
