Select Committee on Defence Appendices to the Minutes of Evidence


Further information on certain licensing decisions detailed in the Government's Second Report on Strategic Export Controls

  The Committee requested certain further information about various licensing decisions between 1 January and 31 December 1999, as set out in the Government's 1999 Annual Report on Strategic Export Controls, published on 21 July 2000.

  2  The decisions on which further information has been requested are summarised in Annexes A to C to this memorandum, and in the confidential annex at Annex E.

  3  Regrettably, a small number of errors have been identified in Part II of the Report. We are always looking for ways to minimise the risk of such errors occurring in the future, and are pleased that the number of errors seems to be decreasing in successive years. However, as was noted in the Report, human error cannot be eliminated altogether in the compilation of such a large body of data. Details are given at Annex D.
