Extract from a memorandum submitted by
the Government on export licence details from the 1999 Annual
I am enclosing a memorandum containing the details
of export licences from the 1999 Annual Report on Strategic Export
Controls that you requested in your letter of 27 July.
Details of some minor errors found in the Annual
Report since publication are also enclosed. An Errata sheet containing
this information will be placed in copies of the Report in the
Libraries of the House.
In the Confidential Annex to the Memorandum
the Government has exceptionally provided additional information
about one licence application that features in both sections 1
and 3 of the Committees' request. It is necessary to provide this
additional information in order to explain the connection between
the original application refusal in 1998 (details of which were
sent to you following publication of the 1998 Annual Report) and
the subsequent successful appeal which led to the granting of
the licence, details of which you also requested.
