HC Deb 10 March 1936 vol 309 cc1966-7W
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?


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.
