  • Written Answers — Department for International Trade: Saudi Arabia: Arms Trade 19 Sep 2016

    The Government takes its arms export responsibilities very seriously. The test applied to an export licence application is whether the proposed export complies with the Consolidated EU and National Arms Export Licensing Criteria. We carefully assess each licence application against these Criteria and will not grant a licence if to do so would breach the Criteria.
