HC Deb 25 November 1920 vol 135 cc663-4W

asked the Secretary of State for War the amount allocated in the Army Estimates for this year for expenditure actually incurred or expenditure unavoidable for winding up the War; will the above amount be spent in the present financial year; and what further sums will be required during the coming financial year?


The amount included in the current year's Army Estimates for terminal charges of the War was £29,500,000, as shown in the Vote on account of 16th February last. As far as I can say at present, this sum will be spent this year. I cannot yet say what provision will be necessary for such terminal charges next year.
