§ 4. Captain WALTER SHAW
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs how many of the 55 members of the League of Nations are still in arrears in 1292 payment of their quota for the expenses in connection with the entire running of the League; with respect to the financial deficiency, in what way is it being met; and are we in any way as a nation or empire attempting to meet it by paying more than our allotted share?
§ Mr. McNEILL
According to the latest information in my possession 17 members of the League of Nations are in arrears in payment of their contributions for 1924 and earlier years; the financial deficiency so caused is being met from balances in the hands of the League. The answer to the last part of the question is accordingly in the negative.
