§ Mr. Llew Smith
To ask the President of the Board of Trade if the export of Cymbeline radar systems to Iraq prior to August 1990 complied with(a) stated export guidelines and (b) existing UN embargoes. 
§ Mr. Lang
[holding answer 16 February 1996]: Under the usual interdepartmental consultation procedures, applications for the export of Cymbeline mortar-detecting radar to Iraq were deemed to supply an insignificant enhancement of military capability. The supply of this equipment therefore complied with the stated guidelines and, accordingly, the applications were approved.
There was no UN embargo affecting Iraq prior to August 1990.
§ Mr. Lang
[holding answer 16 February 1996]: Volume V of Lord Justice Scott's report of his inquiry into the export of defence equipment and dual-use goods to Iraq and related prosecutions contains a schedule of export licence applications from 1984 to 1990, submitted by my Department. This schedule contains details of what goods export licences were applied for, who the goods were destined for, the value of the order and whether the licence was granted or refused.
