HC Deb 22 February 1927 vol 202 c1551

asked the Secretary of State for War what the cost of the Army of Occupation was in 1926 and 1925, respectively?

Captain KING

I can only repeat the information given to my hon. Friend on 21st July last, namely, that the estimated cost for 1925 was £2,089,000 and that for 1926, £1,854,700; and add that the actual expenditure in 1925 will be lower than the estimate, owing mainly to a considerable credit for returned stores.
