Arms Exports

EDM number 252 in 1990-91, proposed by Simon Hughes on 18/12/1990.

That this House notes that the United Kingdom is one of the world's largest arms exporters, that this trade in weaponry fuels instability and makes the world a more dangerous place as well as wasting resources which are desperately needed for environmentally sustainable development, and that Her Majesty's Government sponsors the trade through its Defence Export Services Organisation (DESO); and therefore calls upon Her Majesty's Government to close the DESO as well as working with its European Community partners and through the United Nations for an end to the global trade in military equipment.

This motion has been signed by a total of 46 MPs.
