§ Mr. LAMBERT
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty what has been the total cost to date of the Singapore Naval base, specifying the amount falling on Naval funds?
Sir B. EYRES MONSELL
The expenditure on the Singapore Naval base, excluding the floating dock, to date is approximately £3,438,000, towards which cash contributions amounting to £2,122,000 have been received from the Governments of New Zealand, Hong Kong and Federated Malay States. The net expenditure borne on Navy Votes is, therefore, approximately £1,316,000.
