My right hon. Friend has asked me to reply to this question. The cost of the British Army of Occupation on the Rhine and in Silesia for the period 1st April to 30th June, 1922, is estimated at £600,000.

Is it £600,000 altogether or £600,000 in addition to the cost that would be incurred in any case?

£600,000 altogether—the two combined.
