Defence Trade Treaty

The Prime Minister’s Spokesman (PMS) began by drawing journalists’ attention to the joint US/UK Defence Trade treaty that had been agreed between the two countries that day. The PMS continued that the Prime Minister had said that this treaty would enable our two countries to share defence information, goods and services more effectively. Achieving this agreement had become more important than ever before, at a time when British and American forces continued to work closely in defence and security operations around the world.

Asked where had the Defence Trade Treaty come from, the PMS replied that it was something that had been discussed for some time between the UK and the US.

Asked if the Chancellor knew about the treaty beforehand, the PMS said that discussions went on in Government all the time, and we did not brief on the details.
