To ask the Secretary of State for Defence if he will publish a table of the information he has on defence expenditure in each Organisation for Economic Co-operation and development member state(a) as a percentage of gross domestic product and (b) on a per capita basis.

Mr. Archie Hamilton

The Department does not hold information on the defence expenditure of Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development member states which are not members of NATO. For NATO nations, the information requested is given in figure 14 of volume one of the "Statement on the Defence Estimates 1988" (Cm. 344-I).
