HC Deb 05 December 1967 vol 755 c260W
51. Mr. Dalyell

asked the Minister of Technology what additional costs will accrue to the British Government in connection with its activities at Woomera, Australia, as a result of the devaluation of the £ sterling.

Mr. Stonehouse

Additional costs in the financial year 1967–68 are estimated to be about £320,000. As the present Anglo-Australian Agreement on Woomera expires on 30th June, 1968, I cannot make any forecast of additional costs in future years.
