§ Lord Graham of Edmonton
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether an export licence is required for equipment built or designed for the sole purpose of carrying out the death penalty; and if so whether they will refuse such a licence for a British company which recently constructed a double and single gallows for a Middle Eastern country and for the export of any such equipment in future.
§ The Secretary of State for Trade and Industry (Lord Young of Graffham)
My Lords, an export licence is not required for the export of such equipment.
