HC Deb 21 December 1973 vol 866 c445W
Mr. Biffen

asked the Minister of State for Defence if he will list the amount by which he plans to reduce expenditure for 1974–75 and in the balance of the current year as a result of the statement by the Chancellor of the Exchequer on 17th December, indicating the main areas where such reduction will take place; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Ian Gilmour

I have nothing to add to what I said in the House on 18th December—[Vol. 866, c. 1133–1135]—in reply to a Question by the right hon. and learned Member for Aberavon (Mr. John Morris).
