What Does Palestine and Transjordan Defence Cost Britain?

The Colonial Secretary was also asked by Mr. Fenner Brockway what was the size and composition of the forces, including police, now maintained for the purpose of defence in Palestine and Transjordan, the extra cost of the employment of British forces in Palestine and Transjordan during the present year, and the additional grant-in-aid towards the cost of the Transjordan Frontier Force.

In reply Mr. Thomas referred Mr. Brockway to the annual report on Palestine and Transjordania for 1930, issued by the Colonial Office, and to the Colonial and Middle-East Services Report for 1931.
