pursuant to the reply [Official Report, 9th June 1975, Vol. 893, c. 40–41], circulated the following information:military aid, respectively, to developing nations in the last and current financial years.
Official development assistance disbursements to developing countries from member countries of the Development Assistance Committee of the OECD totalled $9,408 million net in 1973. The estimated net figure for 1974 is $11,300 million. Figures are not available by financial year. Other groups of donors do not provide comparable information about their activities.I have no information about military assistance provided by other countries. As far as the United Kingdom is concerned, I am advised that expenditure is now confined almost entirely to military training assistance for the Service personnel of other countries. Estimated expenditure is £2·6 million in 1974–75 and £1·6 million in 1975–76.
