HC Deb 07 December 1949 vol 470 cc157-8W
Mr. Rhys Davies

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer the amount of fees and expenses, respectively, paid to each legal advocate from this country who has taken part in war crimes proceedings.

Sir S. Cripps

I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer given by the Under-Secretary of State for War in reply to the hon. Member for Lewes (Major Beamish) on 21st November last, which related to fees paid to counsel acting as judge advocate and prosecutor in British Military Courts. It is not possible to isolate that part of the expenses attributable to war crimes work. In addition, fees of £106,122 and 'expenses of £3,431 were paid to British counsel in connection with the Nuremberg and Tokyo trials
