HC Deb 09 February 1967 vol 740 cc361-2W
Mr. Wall

asked the Secretary of State for Commonwealth Affairs what was the total value of military aid to Common- wealth and foreign nations, respectively, in 1964, 1965, and 1966, respectively; and what is estimated for 1967.

Mr. Bowden

The figures (excluding the value of fixed assets handed over) are as follows: —

£ million
Commonwealth countries Countries for which Foreign Office is responsible
1964 28 2
1965 16 3
1966 (January-September) 9 4

The figures for the full year 1966 are not yet available; they will not necessarily be in proportion to the figures for the first nine months because the incidence of expenditure is not constant over the year. An estimate for 1967 cannot yet be given.
