§ Mr. Meadowcroft
asked the Secretary of State for Defence if technology and data transferred to the United Kingdom by Boeing Incorporated under the airborne warning and control system offset arrangements will be subject to audit inspections by United States Government inspectors in the United Kingdom monitoring compliance with re-export controls; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Archie Hamilton
No, unless a distribution licence is involved. The AWACS contract itself makes no provision for distribution licences to be used as a part of the offset arrangements.
