HC Deb 23 February 1954 vol 524 c28W
Mr. Oliver

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs to give the latest statement of contributions paid by governments of Treaty countries to the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation.

Mr. Nutting

The contribution of Her Majesty's Government to the civilian budget of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation for the year 1st January— 31st December, 1954, is approximately £290,000. This represents 225 per cent, of the total civilian budget. Other member governments of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation retain authority for the publication of their own contributions. I regret therefore that I am unable to give these figures.
