UK allows nuclear material sale to Iran

By BILL JACOBS

Westminster Editor

THE Government has allowed the export of key nuclear weapons-grade material to Iran despite the fact that the Islamic fundamentalist country is trying to develop its own atomic bomb.

The BBC revealed today that the Department of Trade and Industry allowed a quantity of the metal beryllium – a key component for the manufacture of nuclear weapons – to be sold to the Tehran regime despite a ban on the sale of arms to the country.

Iran fought a ten-year war with Saddam Hussein’s Iraq and since the coup which replaced the Shah with Ayatollah Khomeini has been seen as one of the most dangerous Muslim states in the Middle East.

The BBC’s File on Four programme tonight will disclose that other countries also received beryllium despite Britain being signed up to an international agreement restricting the sale of the metal to countries trying to develop nuclear weapons including Iran.

The news came as Prime Minister Tony Blair addressed the cabinet prior to tomorrow's debate of a recalled Westminster parliament on military action to oust Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein partly because he is seeking to make his own nuclear weapons. The revelations have alarmed MPs who now plan to raise the issue in the House of Commons tomorrow and elsewhere.

Roger Berry the Labour MP who chairs the select committee which scrutinises controls on arms exports, has said he knew nothing about the sale of beryllium to Iran last year.

He said: “I’m so concerned that I will raise the issue with ministers.â€

Liberal Democrat foreign affairs spokesman Menzies Campbell said he was “extremely alarmed†at the news.
