§ 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.
