§ Mr. Biggs-Davison
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what military equipment Her Majesty's Government are giving to Jordan under Sub-Head E.17 of the Foreign Office Grants and Services Vote of the annual Estimates for 1960–61.
§ Mr. Profumo
The House has already been asked in the Annual Estimates to approve expenditure of £500,000 to provide military equipment for Jordan. This represents the cost of equipment supplied by Her Majesty's Government under an Anglo-American plan to re-equip the Jordanian Armed Forces, and is intended as the first part of a three-year programme, the total cost of which will be50W £1.7 million. As my right hon. and learned Friend reminded the House on 29th June, it is not the practice of Her Majesty's Government to reveal details of arms supplied to foreign Governments.
