Mr. Chope

asked the Secretary of State for Defence if he will make a further statement about the progress of negotiations for the export of frigates to Pakistan.

Mr. Lee

As the hon. Member will appreciate, this is a complex matter, negotiations are continuing with the Pakistan Government and we are hopeful that they will soon reach a conclusion. Details must at present remain confidential for commercial reasons.
