I agree with the hon. Gentleman that this is a matter of the very greatest importance. We are trying to reduce tension in the area, and we will bear what he says in mind in relation to any applications for arms.
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that, unfortunately, Israel's policies are almost as unpopular with the General Assembly and the Security Council as South Africa's and that, while she persists in them, selling arms to her will produce extremely difficult political, economic and moral problems for us?
I have already said that we do not give any indication with regard to individual arms sales. All these matters are kept in perspective, and it is certainly not our desire to give advantage to one side or the other.
