To ask Her Majesty's Government why, in their response to the First Report of the House of Commons Committees on Arms Export Controls, 2010-12, they have declined to support the introduction of legislation covering re-export of arms controls; and whether they will give this further consideration.

The Committees on Arms Export Controls First Joint Report of Session 2010-11 published on 5 April 2011 did not include a recommendation to introduce such legislation and therefore the Government's response to the report published on 7 July 2011 did not seek to address this issue.
