asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what military staff is attached to the Embassy at Paris; what is the annual cost of the same; whether any military staff was attached before the War; and, if so, at what cost?
§ Sir L. WORTHINGTON-EVANS
I have been asked to answer this question. The present staff consists of a military attaché, an assistant military attaché, and a clerk at a total annual cost of£4,334. Before the War there was one military attaché1 at£1,165. It should be stated, in explanation of the increase, that the greater part of the military attaché's time is at present taken up by his work as 2229W British Military Representative on the Allied Military Committee of the Supreme Council. The military attache1 is accredited to Madrid and Lisbon as well as to Paris.
