§ Colonel BURTON
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what has been the extra cost involved in precautionary or special measures in connection with the Italo-Abyssinian dispute; whether he has any comparable figures of expenses incurred by other members of the League of Nations; and whether the British accounts will be presented to the League so that they may collect the quotas of the various League members?
§ Viscount CRANBORNE
The provision made in Supplementary Estimates to meet the cost up to 31st March of the special measures in connection with the Italo-Ethiopian dispute is, I understand, approximately seven million pounds. As regards the second part of the question, I regret that no information on this subject is available. The answer to the last part of the question is No, Sir.
