HC Deb 27 November 1922 vol 159 c266
21. Major KELLEY

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether it is the intention of the British Government to keep the late Sultan of Turkey at a cost of £100 per week?

33. Mr. SEXTON

asked the Prime Minister if the deposed ex-Sultan of Turkey is in receipt of monetary assistance from His Majesty's Government; and, if so, from what fund and what is his private income?


The question of the extent to which His Majesty's Government should bear unavoidable expenditure caused by the Sultan's temporary accommodation in Malta is at present under consideration. Inquiry is being made on the subject of the Sultan's private resources, on which His Majesty's Government at present have no information.


When it comes about that he is receiving financial assistance, will he sign the unemployment register before he receives the dole?


Fifteen shillings a week and 1s. for each wife.
