if an arms export order increases the risk of harm to significant numbers of British citizens you shouldn’t do it.

Your ally today may be your enemy tomorrow. I don't believe that can be determined with any reasonable certainty. You are clearly confident it can despite historical evidence to the contrary. But I'm sure you were confident when you voted for Boris he would get it done and wouldn't be a complete fucking shambles.

- if an arms export order is more costly to the taxpayer than the benefit it brings to the country, you shouldn’t do it

How do you determine benefit? If you look at purely tax dollars in/tax dollars out then a lot of arms sales would cease, but they are supported because of the claimed benefits of influence, co-operation, security etc.
