A Chinese firm's buyout of a British semiconductor company may have directly led to China developing railgun weaponry and electromagnetic aircraft carrier catapults for its navy, according to reports.

An anonymous source, identified as a former Dynex exec, told The Sunday Times that the acquisition of Dynex Semiconductor by Chinese railway firm Zhouzhou CRRC Times Electric in 2008 "could have helped the development" of the Chinese navy's new railguns.

...whoops?

In the rush into the new world of "brexit" and "free trade" I suspect the UK turned a blind eye to such technology transfer, whilst it might play to the domestic market as a bumbling mistake and the product of poor quality govt departmental staff the truth is more along the lines of the UK wanting the Chinese on side for future trade and with the european door closing now would not seem to be the time to upset the applecart.
