HL Deb 28 July 1997 vol 582 cc2-3WA
Lord Hylton

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Further to the Written Answer given by Baroness Symons of Vernham Dean on 14 July (WA 93), when they expect to reach decisions on the methods and agencies to be used to monitor the end-uses of arms and ammunition exported from Britain; and how these decisions will be announced.

Baroness Symons of Vernham Dean

Work to make good the Government's commitment to strengthen monitoring of end-use of defence exports is being taken forward alongside the Government's other commitments on export controls. We shall consider how best to announce the results once this work is complete.
