§ 27. Mr. Waterson
To ask the Secretary of State for Defence if he will make a statement on the contribution to exports of United Kingdom defence industries.
§ Mr. Aitken
I am pleased to report that 1993 was another record year, with British defence equipment manufacturers winning export orders worth around £6,000 million. These figures build on our success in 1992, and maintain the United Kingdom's position as the world's second-largest supplier of defence equipment.
