HC Deb 14 December 1971 vol 828 cc63-4W
Mr. John

asked the Minister of State for Defence what is the total additional expenditure which arises from Government announcements of additional defence measures and provisions in all services since January, 1971.

Lord Balniel

I would refer the hon. Member to Table 2.1 of Cmnd. 4829. To the figures set out in that Table, a total of about £5 million should be added over the period 1972–73 to 1974–75 to reflect the defence share of the additional measures in aid of unemployment as explained by my hon. Friend the Chief Secretary to the Treasury on 25th November.—[Vol. 826, c. 453.]
