PRIVATE EYE 19th July 1968

War is big business to some …whilst discussing aid to Biafra and the loss of two Brtish lives (Father M. Riddle and Mr. J. Ambache) in a land mine incident questions came up in the House of Lords regarding relief efforts and the supply of arms .

NIGERIA AND BIAFRA RELIEF
Hansard Lord sitting HL Deb 31 July 1968 vol 296 cc313-20 313

§ BARONESS SUMMERSKILL
“My Lords, may I ask my noble friend how he reconciles this Statement on relief with the fact that we
are still sending arms to Nigeria for the purpose of destroying yet more Biafrans? In view of this, why
is he surprised that the authorities in Biafra regard us with some contempt and even cynicism?”
