§ Mr. Henderson
asked the Secretary of State for Defence what was the value of all foodstuffs purchased by his Department during 1975; and what is his estimate of purchases of foodstuffs for 1976.214W
§ Mr. Judd
Accounting for the purchase of foodstuffs can be related only to financial, not calendar, years. The actual total value of purchases during the financial year 1975–76 is not yet available but is estimated to be about £60 million. The estimate for the financial year 1976–77 is £57 million.
