§ 64. Rear-Admiral SUETER
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs the total amount the League of Nations has cost since its inception; and what is the amount Great Britain has contributed?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Mr. Eden)
The expenditure of the League since it was founded until the end of 1931 amounted to £11,079,090. The contribution made by Great Britain for the same period amounts to, approximately, £1,080,000.
Lieut.-Colonel Sir FREDERICK HALL
Can the hon. Gentleman say how much of that we had to pay for other countries who were in default?
§ Mr. THORNE
Does not the hon. Gentleman think that this is money much better spent than on fiddling about with tariffs?
§ Mr. MANDER
Is it not a fact that we are spending about one-thousandth part on the League of Nations that we are spending in preparation for war?
