Campaign Against the Arms Trade (CAAT) charts the revolving doors between the arms industry and Blair's Labour government.
The report is made up of three sections. The first presents a brief overview of the political and financial support provided to arms exporters. The second section examines the rationales that the Labour government has put forward in defence of this disproportionate support. Section three constitutes the bulk of the report and considers different aspects of the relationship between UK-based arms companies and the government. It starts with an analysis of the changing relationship between government and industry since the end of the Cold War, then goes on to map out, in depth, how arms-producing companies are linked to government departments and to Labour Peers, the overlap in interests via lobbying companies, known donations to the Labour Party, and the potential impact of Labour-initiated military privatisation schemes.
