HC Deb 19 July 1937 vol 326 c1763
8. Captain Ramsay

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs how much it would cost were every British Embassy and Legation to receive the same contribution towards the stipend of an official chaplain as is now paid on average to the six which are at present so supplied?

Mr. Eden

The average annual contribution to the stipends of chaplains paid from official funds is at present £240. The number of independent posts is 45 and the cost would, therefore, amount to £10,800 a year.
