§ 64. Mr. H. G. WILLIAMS
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he can furnish an estimate of the monthly current expenditure on special naval, military and air precautions in the Mediterranean during such period, after 31st March, 1936, during which precautions may be continued on the present scale?
§ Mr. W. S. MORRISON
The monthly cost of continuance of precautions on the present scale is estimated to be in the region of £500,000.
§ Mr. WILLIAMS
Does not my hon. and learned Friend think that we might make a very much better use of this £500,000 than by pursuing a policy of sanctions?
