HC Deb 11 December 2003 vol 415 c562W
Mr. Caton

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if she will make a statement on the export of British military equipment to Indonesia. [143144]

Mr. MacShane

I have been asked to reply.

All export licence applications for Indonesia are rigorously assessed on a case by case basis against the Consolidated EU and National Arms Export Licensing Criteria, taking account of the circumstances prevailing at the time and other announced Government policies.

All strategic exports licensed to Indonesia in 2002 are set out in the Annual Report on Strategic Export Controls, which is available on the Foreign and Commonwealth Office website: www.fco.gov.uk/Trade-and-Investment/Export Controls. The report also shows that the approximate value of exports of UK military goods to Indonesia in 2002 was £2,130,000.
