asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs the names of those countries who have subscribed to U.N.R.R.A.; and the amount subscribed by each.

Three statements showing the amounts contributed to U.N.R.R.A. by the various member States up to the 31st October, 1945, have been furnished by the Administration. They show, separately, the total contributions, and the contributions to the operating, and to the administrative, expenses of the Organisation, respectively and, in each case, the extent to which they had actually been made available up to that date. Since then an additional contribution from the United Kingdom of £75,000,000 has, as my hon. Friend will remember, been announced in this House.

Following are the statements:
