The new licensing controls on arms brokering and trafficking announced last September will be introduced under new powers on trafficking and brokering to be contained in an Export Control Bill; The Queen's Speech announced that the Government will publish this Bill in draft during this session of Parliament. Full details of the new controls proposed on arms brokering and trafficking will be set out when the draft Bill is published. The Government are committed to introducing the Bill to Parliament as soon as time is available in the legislative programme.
