HC Deb 05 July 1926 vol 197 c1632W
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?


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
