Introduction of an Arms Trade Treaty

This July final negotiations will begin on the introduction of an Arms Trade Treaty. I know many of you have contacted me to pledge your support for this.

I agree that there should be international regulations on this global industry. Currently it is down to individual countries whether or not they have rules on arms trade. A global treaty would set clear guidelines that everyone had to stick to.

I have written to the Minister of State for Business and Enterprise, Mark Prisk MP to raise this issue. When I receive a reply I will update this section of my website.
