HC Deb 26 March 1946 vol 421 c209
51. Major Guy Lloyd

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what is the total establishment of officers, N.C.Os. and men of the British Control Commission in Germany; what is the total of pay and the total of allowances, respectively; how many officers of the commission hold a lower rank than that of major; and how many N.C.Os. are below warrant rank.

The Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster (Mr. John Hynd)

The military staffs of the British Element of the Control Commission for Germany have a total strength of some 4,500 officers and 13,000 other ranks. Their estimated annual effective cost is —'4,300,000 in pay and insurances and —1,200,000 in allowances. Roughly 2,000 officers hold a rank lower than that of major. I regret that in the time available it has not been possible to isolate the figures for N.C.Os.
