To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what progress Her Majesty's Customs and Excise has made in its investigations into potential sanctions-breaking trade between British and Danish companies and Iraq before, at the time of, and since the Gulf war; and if he will make a statement.

[holding answer 24 June 1992]: Investigation into potential sanctions breaking trade is a matter for the Commissioners of Customs and Excise who can prosecute in appropriate cases. It would not be appropriate for information relating to any particular investigation to be made public other than in the course of court proceedings. If the hon. and learned Member has information regarding any potential sanctions-breaking trade, Customs and Excise would be grateful to receive it.
