§ Mr. Llew Smith
To ask the President of the Board of Trade what plans he has to increase his Department's export control office to support the agreement made at the G7 summit in Munich to extend co-operation between the G7 member states on sensitive export controls and to tighten existing arrangements on export licensing.
§ Mr. Needham
I am confident that the resources currently allocated to export controls are adequate. However, I would consider increasing them in the future if the United Kingdom's international export control obligations made it necessary to do so.
