I regret to tell the House that the intervention I made in the speech of the hon. Member for Pontypridd (Mr. John) late on Thursday night about the defence expenditure per head in the Alliance was based upon inaccurate information. In terms of US dollars per head the situation for 1972 was: Holland, 114; Norway 126; France 139; United Kingdom 144; and Germany, 147.

I offer my apologies to the House.
