HC Deb 15 February 1968 vol 758 cc414-5W
Mr. Dalyell

asked the Secretary of State for Defence what plans he has for more frequent trips abroad for army officers; and what consideration has been given to the effect of training.

Mr. Boyden:

Major units of the strategic reserve will need to carry out regular training overseas. The foreign exchange cost will be small compared with that of maintaining bases east of Suez.
