42. Mr. Fisher

asked the Secretary of State for Defence what casualties have been suffered by British troops in defence of Malaysia since the Indonesian aggression began.

Mr. Healey

As I said in reply to the hon. Member for Rye (Mr. Bryant Godman Irvine) on 9th February, the combined British Forces, including Gurkhas, have sustained 100 casualties in the course of operations in defence of Malaysia since September, 1963. In the five months preceding the creation of Malaysia, there were four additional casualties.
