HC Deb 25 October 1954 vol 531 cc223-4W
75. Mr. Gaitskell

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether, in view of the impending reduction and eventual termination of the German contribution to our occupation costs, he intends to discuss with the other members of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation how the additional financial burden, which may thus arise, can be most equitably met; and when such discussions are likely to take place.

Sir A. Eden

The defence burden of each member of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation is regularly reviewed by the North Atlantic Council during each annual review, in the light of all military, economic, social and financial factors.
