HC Deb 16 January 1984 vol 52 c80W
Mr. Ernie Ross

asked the Secretary of State for Defence what has been the national defence budget expressed as a sum per family in each year since 1980.

Mr. Stanley

Information is not available in the form requested. Defence expenditure per capita since 1980, at current prices, is as follows:

1980–81 200
1981–82 225
1982–83 257
1983–84 280

The figures take no account of changes in the definition of defence expenditure over the period. The figure for 1983–84 is based on current provision.
