§ 74. Mr. Ronald Atkins
asked the Secretary of State for Defence if he will seek a reduction of the British armed forces abroad which will release man- 240W power, skilled and unskilled, and lead to a more purposive use of labour for the sake of increasing exports and giving effect to other national priorities.
§ Mr. J. P. W. Mallalieu
One of the results of the Defence Review is that the British armed forces abroad will be reduced and defence will take no more manpower than is essential.
