Friend the Secretary of State for International Trade said in her statement to Parliament on 26<sup>th</sup> September, as soon as the issue was brought to her attention on the 12<sup>th</sup> September, she took immediate action:</p><ul><li>Taking immediate steps to inform the Court and Parliament;</li><li>Putting in place immediate, interim procedures to make sure the error could not happen again;</li><li>Instigating a complete and full internal review of all licences granted for Saudi Arabia and its Coalition partners since 20 June;</li><li>The Permanent Secretary commissioned, on her behalf, a full independent investigation.</li></ul><p>This investigation will: (i) establish the precise circumstances in which these licences were granted; (ii) establish whether any other licences have been granted in breach of the Undertaking to the Court or the commitment to Parliament; and (iii) confirm that procedures are in place to ensure that no further such breaches can occur. The Director General Policy Group at the Department for Work and Pensions has been appointed to lead this investigation.</p><p>During the course of this investigation, licence applications for Saudi Arabia and its Coalition partners will be referred to a new weekly meeting of senior officials from the Department for International Trade, Foreign and Commonwealth Office and Ministry of Defence. (Some will have been refused by this point, for example where they fail to meet one or more of the Consolidated Criteria.) This meeting will reach a recommendation for Ministers as to whether applications are within the scope of the Undertaking and the Parliamentary Statement, applying a further checklist of questions which are designed to ensure that: (i) current and full information is available to enable an assessment of whether the items in question are for possible use in the conflict in Yemen; and (ii) if there has been any change in circumstances in the conflict in Yemen, this is properly included in the assessment. All recommendations to grant licences for the export of items to Saudi Arabia and its Coalition partners will now be referred to Ministers for decision.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Israel remains a strategic priority for UK trade with total trade in goods and services between the UK and Israel totalling £4.2bn in 2019.</p><p> </p><p>Total UK exports to Israel amounted to £2.4bn in 2019 and our Embassy team in Tel Aviv, supported by the Department for International Trade (DIT) team in London and across the UK, continues to support and engage with business on a daily basis both to assess and realise potential opportunities for UK business in line with the Export Strategy, the government’s plan to increase UK total exports as a proportion of GDP to 35% and make Britain a 21st century exporting superpower. The strategy, which focuses on all global markets, including Israel, will encourage and inspire more businesses to export; inform businesses by providing practical assistance on exporting; connect UK businesses to overseas buyers and opportunities; and help provide finance through UK Export Finance to enhance the HMG offer to UK exporters. Through this strategy we will also continue to promote the UK as a bilateral trading partner, reassuring Israeli businesses that the UK remains open for business and remains an advocate for free trade and open markets.</p><p> </p><p>On trade more broadly, the Trade Continuity Agreement signed between the UK and Israel last February reflects the importance both countries attribute to the respective trading relationship and the potential opportunities that exist. I am delighted that the Hon. Member will be supporting the important and exciting work that builds on the agreement as our recently appointed Trade Envoy for Israel.</p>
