To ask the Secretary of State for International Trade, with reference to extant licences for the export of controlled goods from Raytheon UK to Saudi Arabia, if she will set out (a) the type of those licences, (b) their start and end dates, (c) their item codes in the Consolidated list of strategic military and dual-use items that require export authorisation and (d) the quantity of goods exported under those respective licences.
Answer (Graham Stuart)
Providing the detailed information requested would disclose commercially sensitive information, however we can advise there is one extant Standard Individual Export Licence (SIEL) granted to Raytheon UK for export to Saudi Arabia. The licence was issued in the first quarter of 2018, with a two year validity and covers the item rating ML4.
