The end of DESO

The Prime Minister has announced his government’s intention to close the Defence Export Services Organisation – the department that helps to organise arms fairs including DSEi. DESO spends £15m of taxpayers’ money every year promoting the UK arms industry, and its closure represents a huge victory for campaigners against the arms trade. The closure of DSEi’s government backer, coming so soon after the withdrawal of its private backer leaves the arms fair’s future in doubt.
