Lord Jenkins of Putney

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What steps they are taking to reduce the high percentage of NATO's budget borne by the United Kingdom and described by the Commons Foreign Affairs Committee as neither "just nor reasonable".

The Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs (Lord Carrington)

Her Majesty's Government keep this question under constant review. We look forward to co-operating with the Parliamentary Select Committee on Foreign Affairs in its further scrutiny of it.
