UK parliament to scrutinise arms exports
The UK parliament’s Committees on Arms Export Controls (CAEC) – a combination of four separate House of Commons select committees – has launched an enquiry into UK arms exports. CAEC plans to hold public evidence sessions in the new year focused on, among other things, controls on arms brokering, export licensing decisions, the gifting of equipment by the UK to other countries and government-to-government transfers and projects. CAEC has invited written submissions by 15 January.
