§ 21. Mr. CADOGAN
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies how far, as the result of our agreement with Turkey, we have been able to reduce our military commitments in the Near East?
§ Mr. AMERY
It has been found possible, as the result of the agreement with Turkey, to effect considerable reductions of expenditure from the British Exchequer in the Middle East. A saving of some £200,000 has been effected during the current financial year. A further saving of over £1,000,000 is anticipated in the coming year.
