HC Deb 13 February 1979 vol 962 c489W
Mr. Townsend

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if in principle it is the policy of Her Majesty's Government to help the Chinese to modernise their tank force as part of a wider agreement involving trade and closer relations.

Mr. Luard

Any firm proposals would need to be considered by Ministers in the light of the Government's general policy on the sale of defence equipment to China.
