§ 76. Mr. CRAVEN-ELLIS
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs how many of the English staff of the League of Nations are eligible for pensions; and what will be the estimated annual charge upon the Treasury?
§ The LORD PRIVY SEAL (Mr. Eden)
The majority of the officials of the League of Nations of whatever nationality are members of a contributory pension fund established in 1931, to which the League contribution for 1934 amounts to 1,783,742 gold francs. Of this sum His Majesty's Government provide approximately one-tenth. Precise information as to how many of the English staff of the League are members of this fund is not available in the Foreign Office, but if my hon. Friend so desires I will cause inquiries to be made.
