§ 1. Mr. THORNE
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs the number of countries that have not paid their membership contributions to the League of Nations for the present year?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Mr. Eden)
Contributions from States Members of the League of Nations are paid, sometimes in one lump sum and sometimes in instalments, in the course of the League financial year which ends on 31st December. I will in due course obtain a statement of the number of countries whose contributions are wholly or partly unpaid on that date, and will communicate it to the hon. Member.
