asked the Secretary of State for Defence, pursuant to his reply to the hon. Member for Kilmarnock (Mr. McKelvey) of 15 April, whether the sale of arms to Chile as listed means that the embargo on such sales as given in ministerial assurances no longer applies.
No. The embargo on arms sales to Chile continues. The items supplied to Chile during 1979 were spares and support equipment related to contracts existing at the time the embargo was established.
