HC Deb 09 May 1966 vol 728 c11W
59. Mr. G. Campbell

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he will make a statement on the financing of the United Nations Force in Cyprus, and its future after 26th June.

Mr. Padley

The latest estimate of the deficit in respect of the cost of the United Nations Peace-keeping Force in Cyprus up to 26th March 1966 is approximately $2.5 million. The cost of the Force during the current mandate is estimated at approximately $5 million, towards which pledges totalling approximately $3.3 million have so far been made, including $1 million from the United Kingdom. The future of the Force will no doubt be considered by the Security Council before the current mandate expires on 26th June.
