HC Deb 03 November 2003 vol 412 cc431-2W
Kevin Brennan

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what estimate he has made of defence spending per capita in each of the home countries of the United Kingdom in 2003–04. [135559]

Mr. Ingram

The Defence Aim is to deliver security for the people of the United Kingdom and the Overseas Territories by defending them, including against terrorism; and to act as a force for good by strengthening international peace and stability. We do this by providing a world-class national capability—not a specifically regional one. No estimate of the nature suggested has therefore been made.
