HC Deb 23 April 1964 vol 693 c207W
62. Mr. Frank Allaun

asked the Minister of Aviation if he will state the total expenditure on missiles and military aircraft in the last twelve years; and if he will introduce legislation to require the publication of profits made by the main contractors to his Department on Government contracts in this period and in all future contracts.

Mr. Amery

In the last twelve years the expenditure of the Ministry of Supply and the Ministry of Aviation on defence equipment for which the Ministry of Aviation is now responsible, including missiles and aircraft, has amounted to about £4,650 million. The answer to the second question is No.
