§ Mr. Frank Cook
To ask the President of the Board of Trade whether mine detectors may be exported to the former Yugoslavia.
§ Mr. Needham
[holding answer 3 March 1994]: Mine detectors are covered by the military list of the Export of Goods (Control) Order 1992 and therefore fall within the United Nations arms embargo of former Yugoslavia under the terms of United Nations Security Council resolution 713 of 1991. The temporary export of detectors for humanitarian purposes, for example under the auspices of the United Nations, would, however, be given sympathetic consideration.
