§ Mr. Corfield
asked the Secretary of State for Defence what, in view of the defensive nature of the Nimrod and the importance to the United Kingdom of the sea routes round the Cape of Good Hope, is the policy of Her Majesty's Government in regard to the sale of these aircraft to the Union of South Africa.
§ Mr. John Morris
As the hon. Member will know, our policy on the export of arms to South Africa is based on support of resolutions passed by the United Nations Security Council in 1963 and 1964.
