HC Deb 05 June 1917 vol 94 cc49-50W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he can state the exact sum paid annually to the Dowager Duchess of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha; whether payments have been made to her during her residence in Germany; and, if so, by what channels?


An annuity of £6,000 has been paid during the War to the Duchess of Edinburgh under licence, and the payment is being continued in consequence of the terms of the Treaty of 22nd January, 1874, between Great Britain and Russia.
