asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies how many divisional advisers there are in Mesopotamia, and what is the total amount of their salaries?

On 1st January 12 British officers were employed by the Iraq Government with the rank of Divisional Adviser and nine with the rank of Assistant Divisional Adviser. I regret, that I have not the material for replying to the second part of the question, but I am asking for particulars. My hon. and gallant Friend realises, of course, that the salaries of these advisers are paid from Iraq revenues and not by the British Exchequer.
