HC Deb 30 October 1956 vol 558 cc141-2W
106. Mr. Robens

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether, in view of the fact that the armed forces of Jordan, Syria and Egypt are now unified under Egyptian control, he proposes to continue with the £10 million subsidy to Jordan.

Mr. Selwyn Lloyd

The subsidy paid to Jordan by Her Majesty's Government arises out of obligations under the Anglo-Jordan Treaty. These obligations are not directly affected by the decision to form a unified command.
