§ Lord Harrison
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether any components for the repair and maintenance of military DROPS trailers used by the Irish contingent in KFOR have been supplied recently. [HL1254]
§ Baroness Scotland of Asthal
We are happy to approve an export licence for the supply of goods needed for the repair and maintenance of military DROPS trailers used by the Irish contingent of KFOR. The goods will assist KFOR in the valuable work they are doing reconstructing a peaceful Kosovo.
The goods appear on the UK's Military List. UN Security Council Resolution (UNSCR) 1160 (1998) prohibits the sale or supply of arms and related materiel to the FRY. However, UNSCR 1244 (1999) provides that the prohibition imposed by UNSCR 1160 shall not apply to arms and related materiel for the use of the international civil and security presences in Kosovo.
