asked the Minister of Defence if he will make a statement on his recent discussions with the West
German Government on the question of that Government's financial contribution to the cost of troops in West Germany.
I would refer the hon. Member to the reply which I gave today to the hon. Members for Battersea, North (Mr. Jay) and Ashfield (Mr. Warbey), and the hon. and gallant Member for Brixton (Lieut. Colonel Lipton).
