HC Deb 03 March 1947 vol 434 c23W
105. Mr. Peake

asked the Minister of Defence the net expenditure of British troops overseas in each of the territories where they have been stationed during the calendar year of 1946.

I regret that this is not immediately available. He will appreciate that the financial and accounting staffs in the Service Departments are very busy at the present time. The necessary details are, however, being assembled and I will send them to him as soon as possible.
