Government hosts arms dealing conference in Nottingham

Today the UK Government hosted a conference in Nottingham aimed at helping British arms companies boost their sales. Arms companies from across the country were invited to the swanky Nottingham Belfry hotel in Broxtowe for this one-day event, entitled “Selling to Defence & Security Markets“.

The event was organised by a controversial government department called UKTI DSO, which spends millions of pounds of taxpayers’ money every year promoting British arms exports, often to unstable and repressive regimes. The organisation won the 2010 Quango Awards prize for Most Ethically Dubious Quango, and Campaign Against Arms Trade is trying to get it closed down.
