EXPORTS TO THE USA
Thank you for raising exports to the USA.
The Government takes its export control responsibilities very seriously.
The UK operates one of the worlds’ most robust and transparent export control regimes. Each export licence application is considered on a case-by-case basis against the Consolidated EU and National Arms Export Licensing Criteria. The Consolidated Criteria provide a thorough risk assessment framework, requiring the Government to think very carefully about the possible impact of providing equipment and its capabilities.
You will be interested in the actual rules and regulations that govern this important area and they can be found here. https://www.gov.uk/starting-to-export/licences
My understanding is that the Government will not grant an export licence if doing so would be inconsistent with the criteria.
I have ensured Ministers are aware of the points you make about these exports.
