U.S – UK row over purchases of nuclear submarine equipment

US officials have threatened to limit defence cooperation with Britain in
a row about the takeover of a supplier of secret tech to nuclear
submarines. Intelligence sources said that Kwasi Kwarteng, the Business
Secretary, will jeopardise future partnerships between the two countries if
he blocks the £2.6bn sale of Ultra Electronics to Boston-based private
equity business Advent International.

They accused Mr Kwarteng of unfairly
discriminating against US companies after he ordered a national security
investigation into the takeover of Ultra, which makes military
communications equipment including highly classified kit for Trident
nuclear submarines.
