Mr. De la Bère
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will now make a statement giving the detailed cost of each of the Services year by year for the period from 1st September, 1939, to 1st September, 1945.
§ Mr. Dalton
I assume that the hon. Member refers to the cost of the Defence Services. The accounts already published show the expenditure to 31st March, 1944. The accounts for the year ended 31st March, 1945, are now being prepared and will be published in due course.
