Arms Trade

Volume 699: debated on Wednesday 12 March 2008

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Which 10 countries were the largest exporters of weapons to Africa in each of the past 10 years; what were the volumes of exports; and what receipts were generated from the exports. [HL2071]

The UK does not as a matter of course compile information about arms imports and exports, other than where the UK is an exporter. It would incur disproportionate cost for the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) to collate the information requested. Information about the UK's strategic export controls is available on the FCO website at www.fco.gov.uk/servlet/Front?pagename=Open Market/Xcelerate/ShowPage&c=Page&cid= 1007029395474.
