HC Deb 08 November 1961 vol 648 cc54-5W
69. Mr. Warbey

asked the Lord Privy Seal what is the estimated total annual cost of the British Advisory Police Mission in Saigon; and how much of this will be borne by the local government, and how much by Her Majesty's Government.

Mr. P. Thomas

As my right hon. Friend the Lord Privy Seal stated on 23rd October, the cost of the Mission is not expected to exceed an overall annual total of £110,000. I cannot, at this stage, give the hon. Gentleman the exact monetary value of the Vietnamese contribution, but the major share will be borne by Her Majesty's Government.
