HC Deb 23 October 1946 vol 427 c402W
148. Mr. Austin

asked the Secretary of State for War what is the total cost incurred to the most convenient date, of expenditure on British Forces in Greece since the German evacuation; what our current commitments are in terms of monthly costs; and what further commitments are anticipated for the remainder of 1946 and the year 1947.

Mr. John Freeman

The total cost of the pay and family allowances of British Forces in Greece from the time of the German evacuation up to 30th September, 1946, is very approximately £16 million. At present, pay and family allowances are costing about half a million pounds a month. I cannot give any accurate information with regard to future costs.
