"To ask the Secretary of State for International Trade, what steps he is taking to comply with the recommendation of the UN Special Rapporteur on freedom of opinion and expression to impose an immediate moratorium on the export, sale, transfer, use or servicing of privately developed surveillance tools until a human rights-compliant safeguards regime is in place."
Graham Stuart. Parliamentary Under-Secretary (Department for International Trade)
"The Consolidated EU and National Arms Export Licensing Criteria provide a thorough risk assessment framework for considering licence applications, and take into account the respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms in the country of final destination.

Licensing decisions are based on the most up-to-date information and analysis available at the time, including reports from NGOs and our overseas network."
