HC Deb 04 November 1948 vol 457 c107W
91. Mr. Ivor Thomas

asked the Minister of Education how much of the U.N.E.S.C.O. cashier's defalcations of 1,173,339 francs will fall to be borne by the taxpayers of the United Kingdom.

Mr. Tomlinson

The loss resulting from the cashier's defalcations, which occurred in 1946 before U.N.E.S.C.O. was itself constituted was met by the Organisation during 1947. The percentage contribution paid by the United Kingdom for that year was 14.07.
