The Department for International Trade does not have a definition of the threshold for minimal impact.

In the response I gave to the Hon. Member’s question, UIN:100568, we said “We do not expect the revised Strategic Export Licensing Criteria to have a significant impact on the level of arms exports to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates

There is no special meaning to the phrase “significant impact” as used in our answer.

Does this answer the above question?
