HC Deb 20 April 1959 vol 604 cc7-8W
Mr. Harold Davies

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if, in view of the South-East Asia Treaty Organisation Council's approved budget estimate of $896,860 for the year 1959–60, covering the costs of civil and military headquarters, he will state the British contribution to this sum.

Mr. R. Allan

The British contribution to the budget of the South-East Treaty Organisation is assessed at 16 per cent. Our share of the total of $896,860 is, therefore, 5143,49760, which is equivalent approximately to £51,250.
