Title United Kingdom_USA cost sharing negotiations and agreement (1970)
Description Arrangements for the cost-sharing of US defence facilities in the UK were embodied in the "Ambassador's Agreement" of 1953: this expired in 1962. Since then protracted negotiations have been carried on to produce a new set of arrangements. On the UK side the Departments involved are MOD, FCO, DOE and the Treasury. The major outstanding issue concerns the rate at which departmental expenses should be charged for work done by DOE for the US Services.
