asked the Minister of Defence the numbers of aircraft, tanks and armoured fighting vehicles which have been supplied to Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Transjordan since May, 1945, or the total value of Army and Air Force material and equipment so supplied.

Forty military aircraft, 38 scout cars, and 298 carriers have been supplied to Egypt since May, 1945. No tanks have been supplied. No equipment of this character has been supplied to Saudi Arabia or Transjordan. I regret that it would not be possible without undue labour to assess the total value of military equipment supplied to these countries.
