HC Deb 01 November 1954 vol 532 cc6-7W
59. Mr. Callaghan

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what annual sum is paid by Western Germany representing occupation costs of the British Forces in Germany.

Mr. Nutting

I would refer the hon. Member to the Note on Financial Arrangements in the White Paper on the Paris Agreements which has now been laid before the House. The figure for occupation costs for British Forces in Germany paid by the Federal Government is of the order of £150 million a year.
