14. Captain CROOKSHANK
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what progress is being made with the commission for liquidating the affairs of the superior council of health in Turkey; what is the British share of the expenditure this year; and how soon is it anticipated that the work will be concluded?
§ Sir A. CHAMBERLAIN
The Commission has practically concluded its work, having signed the first portion of its final Report on 23rd January last. No share of the expenditure of the Commission falls on His Majesty's Government except the salary of the British delegate at the rate of £1,350 per annum. This will amount to approximately £560 for this year if, as is hoped, he is able to leave Constantinople about the end of May on the completion of the labours of the Commission.
