Mr. Chichester-Clark

asked the Secretary of State for Defence whether contracts for Service clothing are placed outside the United Kingdom; and what was their value in 1966, 1967 and to the latest convenient date in 1968, respectively.

Mr. John Morris

The value of contracts place from the United Kingdom with firms abroad is approximately:

1965–66 10,000
1966–67 21,000
1967–68 20,000

These figures are not readily available by calendar years. In addition, certain purchases have been made abroad by local purchase.
