Anglo-US Defence Trade Treaty

Volume 718: debated on Monday 29 March 2010


Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government what discussions they have had with (a) the government of the United States, and (b) members of the United States Congress, about the ratification in the United States of the United Kingdom–United States Defence Trade Co-operation Treaty which was ratified in the United Kingdom in early 2008. [HL2995]

Her Majesty's Government discusses the UK-US Defence Trade Co-operation Treaty frequently with all levels of the US Government. Ratification of the treaty still awaits the approval of the US Senate, and the UK has also ensured that Members of the Senate are aware of the benefits the treaty brings to both nations in operational and industrial terms.
