HC Deb 26 October 1977 vol 936 cc695-6W
Mr. Hooley

asked the Secretary of State for Defence if he will list in the Official Report the cost across the exchanges of maintaining British troops and garrisons outside the United Kingdom in each of the years 1974 to 1977, specifying within that figure the foreign exchange cost of BAOR.

Mr. Mulley:

I would refer my hon. Friend to the Defence White Papers for 1975, 1976 and 1977—Cmnds. 5976, 6432 and 6735, respectively. These contain—Annex A, Table 5—forecasts for the financial year ahead of local defence expenditure in Germany and other over- seas stations, together with the latest forecasts for the financial year just ending.
