Approximately £30,000 exclusive of the value of stores issued from stock, is the estimated expenditure incurred up to date in connection with the despatch of troops to Palestine, stated Secretary of War, Tom Shaw, in the House of Commons yesterday. Replying to the question of Capt. Peter MacDonald, Shaw said that approximately three infantry battalions and section of armored cars were dispatched to Palestine, together with auxiliary troops. One infantry battalion and the armored cars have been withdrawn.

Asked by Captain MacDonald by whom the expenditure would be met, Shaw replied no decision has yet been reached.
