asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what was the cost to public funds of the Peace Through NATO stall at the recent 1985 Royal Highland Show at Ingliston.

I assume the hon. Member is referring to the Ministry of Defence NATO British Defence Policy Exhibition mounted at various locations throughout the United Kingdom during 1985. At each venue, including the Royal Highland Show at Ingliston, a Peace Through NATO (PTN) representative was available to answer PTN questions and distribute PTN literature.PTN received a grant-in-aid of £74,500 from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office for 1985–86. Its representative at Ingliston was a volunteer. The proportion of the grant used on the show was therefore minimal and merely covered the cost of literature distributed.
