HC Deb 20 July 1960 vol 627 cc49-50W
Mr. Biggs-Davison

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what military equipment Her Majesty's Government are giving to Jordan under Sub-Head E.17 of the Foreign Office Grants and Services Vote of the annual Estimates for 1960–61.

Mr. Profumo

The House has already been asked in the Annual Estimates to approve expenditure of £500,000 to provide military equipment for Jordan. This represents the cost of equipment supplied by Her Majesty's Government under an Anglo-American plan to re-equip the Jordanian Armed Forces, and is intended as the first part of a three-year programme, the total cost of which will be £1.7 million. As my right hon. and learned Friend reminded the House on 29th June, it is not the practice of Her Majesty's Government to reveal details of arms supplied to foreign Governments.
