HC Deb 11 July 1995 vol 263 cc532-3W
Mr. Cox

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence if he will list the countries to which the United Kingdom has sold military arms or equipment with Government support during the last three years. [32674]

Mr. Arbuthnot

The Defence Export Services Organisation within my Department exists to help United Kingdom defence industries to export. DESO assistance has been an important factor in the achievement of military export orders worth on average some £4.5 billion in each of the last five years. The presence and degree of such assistance, however, varies from contract to contract and it would not be practical to produce a list of countries to which UK military exports had been made with assistance from DESO.
