Small Arms and Light Weapons
§ Lord Astor of Hever
asked Her Majesty's Government:
What support they are giving to the work of the South East Europe Clearinghouse for the Control of Small Arms and Light Weapons. [HL1440]
§ Baroness Amos
Her Majesty's Government believe that the South East Europe Clearinghouse for the Control of Small Arms and Light Weapons (SEESAC) is a crucial information hub in the region, which is working towards the implementation of a regional stability pact implementation plan to combat the proliferation of SALW and ammunition.
Under the Global Conflict Prevention Pool the UK contributes indirectly to the work of SEESAC through support for UNDP's global weapons collection, management and destruction programme, which has projects and programmes in 45 countries and three regions.
