To ask the Secretary of State for International Trade, if he will publish the (a) white list of countries to which UK companies can ship Category C military goods under OGTC licences, (b) number of licences granted each year since 2010 and (c) names of the countries in which the end user for those licences is based.
The Open General Trade Control Licence (Category C Goods) is published online at https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/open-general-trade-control-licence-category-c-goods
The destinations to which Category C goods may be shipped under the licence are specified in paragraph 1 and schedule 2 of the licence itself.
Traders do not apply for general licences; instead they register via DIT’s online licensing system known as SPIRE. The number of registrations in each quarter for each open general licence are published as Official Statistics, as part of the Government’s quarterly licensing data and is available on gov.uk at: https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/strategic-export-controls-licensing-data.
