§ Colonel DAY
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer the estimated gross expenditure on the Army, Navy, and Air Force, respectively, for the 12 months ending 31st May, 1926?
§ Mr. MCNEILL
The figures for the 12 months ending the 31st May, 1926, are not available. It will not be possible to state the gross expenditure until the appropriation accounts for the financial year 1925–26 are complete; the latest figures available are those of the issues from the Exchequer for the Services in question, which arc contained in Table I of the Financial Statement, 1926–27, House of Commons Paper 69 of 1926, namely:
£ Army 44,250,000 Navy 59,657,000 Air Force 15,470,000
