HC Deb 23 January 1947 vol 432 cc91-2W
Mr. Sharp

asked the Minister of Transport what success has been achieved to date by the European Central Inland Transport Organisation in the carrying out of its executive functions; what expenditure has, so far, been incurred: and how much will be borne by this country.

Mr. Barnes

It is not possible within the limits of an answer to a Parliamentary Question to give an account of the many and varied activities which this organisation carries on, but it publishes monthly a full report on the progress of its work. Its expenditure for the period 1st November, 1945, to 31st December, 1946, is estimated to be £400,000 of which £61,290 is the United Kingdom's share.
