§ Major KELLEY
asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies how many divisional advisers there are in Mesopotamia, and what is the total amount of their salaries?
§ Mr. ORMSBY-GORE
On 1st January 12 British officers were employed by the Iraq Government with the rank of Divisional Adviser and nine with the rank of Assistant Divisional Adviser. I regret, that I have not the material for replying to the second part of the question, but I am asking for particulars. My hon. and gallant Friend realises, of course, that the salaries of these advisers are paid from Iraq revenues and not by the British Exchequer.
