§ Mr. Edmund Dell
asked the Secretary of State for Defence what was the total attributable cost of United Kingdom Forces East of Suez in each of the years since 1959; and what was the cost across the exchanges in each year specified.
§ Mr. Healey
Functional costings capable of providing estimates of the costs attributable to U.K. Forces East of Suez have only recently been introduced. There are, therefore, no figures available for past years. The costs across the exchanges were as follows:
£ million 1959 1960 1961 1962 1963 1964 68 76 86 88 91 103
