§ 65. Mr. Frank Allaun
asked the Secretary of State for Defence why the statement on the Defence Estimates for 1967–68 omits a section (Annex H),headed geographical analysis of expenditure, which included figures giving the total cost of maintaining troops in different parts of the world, and tables giving total expenditure of foreign exchange.
§ Mr. Healey
The geographical analysis of expenditure was omitted because experience has shown that the figures were liable to be misinterpreted. Figures for foreign exchange expenditure are shown as usual, except that those for Germany have been omitted for the reasons given in Annex H.
