HC Deb 01 November 1966 vol 735 cc57-8W
Mr. Wall

asked the Secretary of State for Commonwealth Affairs what was the cost of the British information services in Australia during the past three financial years, respectively; and what sum is projected for the next financial year.

Mr. Bowden

The cost in the current year, including a notional allocation of C.O.I. expenditure, is estimated at £268,000. Corresponding figures for 1965–66 and 1964–65 were £275,000 and £346,000. I cannot of course quote any figures for the next financial year before the Estimates are laid before Parliament.
