To ask Her Majesty's Government what estimate they have made of the amount of materials and software exported to the Egyptian police and internal security forces by the UK.

For items that require an export licence, the Government publishes Official Statistics (on a quarterly and annual basis) detailing licences granted and refused for exports on GOV.UK:

Export licence applications are rigorously assessed on a case-by-case basis against the Consolidated EU and National Arms Export Licensing Criteria, taking account of all prevailing circumstances at the time of the application.

For materials and software that are not controlled we do not hold records of the amounts exported specifically to the Egyptian police and internal security forces.
