HC Deb 13 July 1959 vol 609 cc7-8W
58. Mr. Shinwell

asked the Minister of Defence what was the French financial contribution to the provision of the infrastructure of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation in France; and, in view of the transfer of United States aircraft from that country to this, what compensation will be paid to the British Government.

Mr. Sandys

I regret that the information asked for in the first part of the Question is confidential. Since the transfer will involve no cost to Her Majesty's Government the question of compensation does not arise.
