asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what is the total cost of the Army of Occupation on the Rhine and Silesia since 1st April, 1922?
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.
Captain W. BENN
How much of this is met by the German indemnity?
That should be addressed to the Treasury.
Lord R. CECIL
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.
