Mr. Menzies Campbell

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what is his policy towards the developing defence industry countries, in the light of the NATO report entitled "Shared Roles, Risks and Responsibilities in the Alliance."

NATO has long accepted the need for assistance to be given to developing defence industry countries to help them meet their defence requiremens. We provide assistance in a variety of forms, including training and credit support for sales of defence equipment.
