HC Deb 24 February 1983 vol 37 c532W
Mr. Dalyell

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer how much has been paid out of the contingencies fund or charged to the contingency reserve for matters connected with the Falkland Islands in the current financial year.

Mr. Brittan

Since my reply to the hon. Member on 27 January, a further £500,000 has been advanced temporarily from the contingencies fund, a total of £12.5 million. All has now been repaid. The amount charged to the contingency reserve remains at £379.7 million.
