HC Deb 08 November 1977 vol 938 c67W
34. Mr. John Ellis

asked the Secretary of State for Defence what percentage of the United Kingdom's gross national product is currently being spent on defence as compared with other countries in NATO.

Mr. Mulley

I would refer my hon. Friend to the table on page 13 of the 1977 Statement on the Defence Estimates, Cmnd. 6735, which gives a comparison among the NATO countries for 1976. Comparable figures for 1977 are not yet available.
