Don Foster MP has signed EDM 2166 on the arms trade of the UK Trade and Investment’s Defence and Security Organisation. The EDM reads:

That this House notes that the arms export priority markets for the UK Trade and Investment’s Defence and Security Organisation in 2010-11 included Algeria, Iraq, Libya, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates; further notes that, with the exception of Libya, these sales efforts continue; is concerned by the inherent conflict between the Government’s promotion of military exports and its stated desire to help protect human rights overseas; and therefore calls on the Government to end the export of military equipment to all authoritarian regimes.
