Military Equipment: Imports

Volume 456: debated on Thursday 1 February 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what the value of imports of military defence and security-related equipment to the UK has been over the last five years, broken down by country. (112102)

I will place a copy of the data giving the value of imports of defence equipment broken down by country, for the last five years, in the Library of the House. The data are consistent with those published by the Defence Analytical Services Agency in Table 1.11 of UK Defence Statistics 2006, a copy of which is available in the Library of the House.

Data are based on HM Revenue and Customs information relating to defence equipment reported to UK Customs. Defence equipment is identified by an agreed set of tariff codes intended to capture the movement of military equipment.
