HC Deb 25 November 1983 vol 49 c325W
Mr. Warren

asked the Secretary of State for Defence if it remains the policy of Her Majesty's Government that account is taken of the indirect value to Her Majesty's Government of the recycling of tax and national insurance implicit in the United Kingdom goods and services content of bids for defence contracts and that this is deducted from the gross sum of the bids when comparing them with those submitted by foreign bidders; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Lee

An answer is being prepared, and I shall arrange for it to be published in theOfficial Report as soon as possible.
