Mr. Healey

The Defence Review target for 1969–70 of £2,000 million at the price level of 1964–65 Estimates corresponds almost exactly with the Estimates

incorporated in their legal systems the terms of the Merchant Shipping (Liability of Shipowners and Others) Act, 1958:

for that year. Actual expenditure in 1964–65, excluding surplus receipts, was about £1,945 million or £55 million less at level prices than the 1969–70 Estimates target.
