||<p>The Government publishes Official Statistics (on a quarterly and annual basis)
of licences granted and refused for military exports on GOV.UK, which can be found
at: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/strategic-export-controls-licensing-data"
</p><p>Export licence applications are carefully assessed against the Consolidated
EU and National Arms Export Licensing Criteria. A licence would not be granted if
to do so was inconsistent with the Criteria. The policy remains as announced to parliament
in a Written Ministerial Statement on 25 March 2014 (<a href="https://publications.parliament.uk/pa/cm201314/cmhansrd/cm140325/wmstext/140325m0001.htm#14032566000018"
and updated with an additional policy, as announced in a Written Ministerial Statement
on 13 September 2018 (<a href="https://www.parliament.uk/business/publications/written-questions-answers-statements/written-statement/Commons/2018-09-13/HCWS957/"
