§ Mr. Matthew Taylor
To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how many times Ministers in his Department met members and officials on the United States Government between 2 May 1997 and 1 January 1998; on what dates and at which locations; and which (a) Ministers and (b) US counterparts and officials attended each meeting. 
§ Dr. Moonie
[pursuant to the reply, 10 January 2000, c. 86W]: I regret that one detail contained in the response was inaccurate. The appointment held by the hon. Joe Reeder, who was met by the Minister for Defence Procurement in the UK on 1 July 1998, should have read, the Under Secretary of the Army and not Secretary of the Navy, as stated.
