§ Mr. Freeson,
pursuant to the reply [Official Report, 9th June 1975, Vol. 893, c. 40–41], circulated the following information:
military aid, respectively, to developing nations in the last and current financial years.
§ Mr. Prentice
Official development assistance disbursements to developing countries from member countries of 161W the Development Assistance Committee of the OECD totalled $9,408 million net in 1973. The estimated net figure for 1974 is $11,300 million. Figures are not available by financial year. Other groups of donors do not provide comparable information about their activities.
I have no information about military assistance provided by other countries. As far as the United Kingdom is concerned, I am advised that expenditure is now confined almost entirely to military training assistance for the Service personnel of other countries. Estimated expenditure is £2.6 million in 1974–75 and £1.6 million in 1975–76.
