HC Deb 12 April 1935 vol 300 cc1490-2W

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies the sums of money spent annually by the French and Italian Governments, respectively, in Palestine and Syria on education, together with the comparable amount spent by the British Government?


I have no information as to the expenditure of the French and Italian Governments on education in Palestine or in Syria. His Majesty's Government in the United Kingdom spends no money on education in those countries except in connection with the education of the personnel of Army and Air Force detachments in Palestine.
