HC Deb 14 May 1928 vol 217 c640

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what is the total number of British officials now fulfilling either administrative or judicial functions or acting in an advisory capacity in the British mandated territory of Iraq: whether the salaries of these officials are borne by His Majesty's Government or by the Government of Iraq: and what is the amount of those salaries?


Excluding military and subordinate personnel the total number of British officials in the employment of the Government of Iraq at the present time is approximately 130. Their salaries, of the exact amount of which I am not aware, are paid from the Iraq Treasury.
