HC Deb 04 July 1985 vol 82 cc271-2W
Mr. Corbyn

asked the Secretary of State for Defence what was the total income received from providing training for service men from overseas armed forces for each of the last three years for which figures are available; and, of this, how much is attributable to training Chilean service men.

Mr. Lee

The total estimated charges for training foreign and commonwealth personnel in the United Kingdom for each of the last three financial years are as follows:

£ million
1984–85 32
1983–84 31.6
1982–83 22.8

Contained within these figures are elements which are not direct training charges but which are related to foreign and commonwealth training (for example, messing and accommodation).

It is not our practice to reveal details of training provided for individual countries since this information is confidential between Her Majesty's Government and the Government concerned.
