To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Affairs, what assessment he has made of whether armoured land rovers exported from the UK under arms export licences have been used in reported attacks on Palestinian civilians in the West Bank in the week to 18 May 2021; and if he will make a statement.

HM Government takes its export control responsibilities very seriously and operates one of the most robust arms export control regimes in the world. We consider all our export applications thoroughly against a strict risk assessment framework and keep all licences under careful and continual review as standard. HM Government will not grant an export licence if to do so would be inconsistent with the Consolidated EU and National Arms Export Licensing Criteria.
