CARDIFF ARMS FAIR
EDM #1184
Tabled 19 April 2018
2017-19 Session
That this House condemns Cardiff Council for allowing the Cardiff Arms Fair, or Defence Procurement, Research, Technology and Exportability exhibition to go ahead at the Motorpoint Arena; acknowledges with disdain that the weapons fair brings together the Ministry of Defence and the Department for International Trade with weapons dealers and suppliers; notes with regret that the fair has been held in Cardiff since 2014 when protesters were successful in driving the fair out of Bristol; further condemns the UK arms trade for supplying weapons which are used in conflicts resulting in significant civilian suffering from Gaza to Yemen; and regrets that Cardiff is the venue of choice for this exhibition of the UK arms trade.
