§ Mr. Wrigglesworth
asked the Lord Privy Seal what information or assistance was provided to Major David Le Sueur regarding his study trip to Argentina as part of his management studies course at Teeside polytechnic; whether he was aware that the purpose of Major Le Sueur's trip was to study the possibility of promoting arms sales; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Ridley
Major Le Sueur was provided with standard background information on Argentina which is made available by officials to any member of the public who may request it. Major Le Sueur indicated that he had chosen arms procurement for a special research project with particular reference to Argentina. The question of the promotion of arms sales did not arise.
