Department for International Trade

Question asked by Mr Martyn Day MP (Linlithgow and East Falkirk)

Asked on: 24 September 2019

“To ask the Secretary of State for International Trade, what discussions the Government has had with the UAE Government on ensuring the exports outlined in the New Security Export Strategy will be used in accordance with international humanitarian law.”

Answered by: Mr Conor Burns

Answered on: 02 October 2019

“The new Security Export Strategy does not outline any specific exports to the UAE and no discussions linked to the strategy have taken place with the UAE Government. The UK Government takes exporting responsibly very seriously. Where an export licence is required, it will be thoroughly assessed against the Consolidated EU and National Arms Export Licensing Criteria.”
