Closing dozens of small embassies to save money would be a "false economy", William Hague has told MPs.

The foreign secretary said the UK got "value for money" out of the Foreign Office (FCO) whose spending was less than that of Kent County Council.

The FCO accounted for just 0.3% of total spending and closing the cheapest 40 missions would save 2.5m.

He also played down reports the BBC's Burmese service could be axed in spending cuts.

In evidence to the foreign affairs committee, Mr Hague was asked how cuts might affect the FCO's international operations.
