§ Norman Lamb
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement on the role of UK embassies and diplomatic missions overseas in promoting sales of British military equipment.
§ Mr. Mike O'Brien
Some of our embassies and diplomatic missions have defence sections who help in promoting the acquisition of British defence equipment, and this is supplemented in a small number of missions by defence sales representatives. Heads of mission and their deputies may give support to this work as appropriate.
