asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if, in the light of the adoption of United Nations Security Council resolution 591 of 1986, Her Majesty's Government will review their decision to license the export to South Africa of the Plessey AR3D military radar system; and if he will make a statement.
I shall reply to the hon. Gentleman as soon as possible.
asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what is Her Majesty's Government's policy towards the export of Landrovers to South Africa for use by the South African military and police; and if he will make a statement.
Exports of vehicles specially designed for military purposes are subject to control to all destinations under the Export of Goods (Control) Order 1985, as amended. The Government fully comply with the United Nations arms embargo against South Africa.
asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what action has been taken since 28 November 1986 to implement the ban, in United Nations Security Council resolution 591, on the export to South Africa of (a) aircraft, (b) aircraft engines, (c) aircraft spares, (d) electronic and telecommunication equipment, (e) computers and (f) four-wheel drive vehicles, destined for the military or police forces and which have a military capacity or are intended for military purposes.
None is required. Security Council resolution No. 591, which is non-mandatory, is a clarification of the 1977 embargo, which we already fully implement, and not an extension of its provisions.
