§ 16. Mr. Healey
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs to what extent it is Her Majesty's Government's policy to permit the supply of British arms to the Government of Iraq.
§ Mr. Selwyn Lloyd
I have nothing to add to the reply given to the hon. Member for Newcastle-under-Lyme (Mr. Swingler) on 2nd March by my hon. Friend the Minister of State.
§ Mr. Healey
Is the Foreign Secretary aware that there have been widespread Press reports that the British Government are still exporting arms to Iraq? As the Iraq Government are much more likely to use those arms to fight for Communism rather than against it, does not that strengthen the case for trying to make an agreement on the supply of arms to all countries in the Middle East?
