HC Deb 07 December 1922 vol 159 c2038W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies how much has already been spent on the construction of a residence for the British High Commissioner of Baghdad; and whether he will take immediate steps to stop any further expenditure on this head until the whole position has been reviewed in Parliament?


I would refer the hon. Member to my reply to the question by the hon. and gallant Member for Maidstone (Commander Bellairs) on the 28th November. I need only add that the building is now complete and no further expenditure apart from maintenance is anticipated.
