Lord Bach

Government assessments of foreign holdings of military equipment are classified. A widely accepted, non-official reference isThe Military Balance 2000–2001, a copy of which is in the Library of the House. In addition, the United Nations Register of Conventional Arms contains details of tank holdings for those nations who have provided input: it is available at http://disarmament.un.org/ UN_REGISTER.nsf.
