Parliamentary question: Arms Trade: Saudi Arabia

Lloyd Russell-Moyle MP to Graham Stuart, Parliamentary Under-Secretary (Department for International Trade) on 3 Sep 2019
Lloyd Russell-Moyle MP
"To ask the Secretary of State for International Trade, with reference to the 20 June 2019 Court of Appeal judgement on arms sales to Saudi Arabia, how many (a) standard individual export licences, (b) open individual and (c) open general export licenses his Department is reviewing."
Graham Stuart, Parliamentary Under-Secretary (Department for International Trade)
"Further to the judgment of 20 June 2019, the Government is carefully considering the implications of the judgement for licensing, including extant licenses. The Government is considering the design of the process for licensing to ensure compliance with the judgment, as well as determining which extant licences are in scope. While this is taking place, the Government will not grant any new licenses for export to Saudi Arabia or its coalition partners for items that might be used in Yemen."
