HC Deb 18 April 1980 vol 982 c729W
Mr. Cartwright

asked the Secretary of State for Defence if he will set out the major additional improvements in defence capability which he expects to result from the decision to increase defence spending by 3 per cent. in 1980–81 and by a further 3 per cent. a year thereafter, indicating the main elements of the defence budget to which the additional spending will be diverted.

Mr. Pym

I refer the hon. Gentleman to the answer I gave yesterday to his hon. Friend the Member for Penistone (Mr. McKay).
