HC Deb 02 March 1984 vol 55 cc349-50W
Mr. McNamara

asked the Secretary of State for Defence whether he will publish the details and value of any contracts placed by his Department with United Scientific Holdings and its subsidiaries from 1979 to 1983 and in 1984.

Mr. Heseltine

I refer the hon. Gentleman to the annual "Statements on the Defence Estimates" 1980–83 which include the published information on payments made to major United Kingdom-based defence contractors by the Ministry of Defence. It is not our practice to release information on the details and value of individual contracts.
