HC Deb 23 March 1925 vol 182 c39
82. Sir F. WISE

asked the Secretary of State for War the net cost of the British forces on the Rhine for the last three months?


The cost of the British troops in occupation of German territory for the three months December, 1924, and January and February, 1925, exclusive of accommodation and other services formerly provided without charge by the German Government, is estimated at £375,000, of which some £310,000 will be repayable to Army funds out of the "Dawes" Annuity to be paid by Germany. As from 1st September, 1924, the cost of accommodation and other services provided by the German Government is to be paid for and recovered from the "Dawes" Annuity, but it is not yet possible to state to what this charge will amount.
