§ Mr. Warbey
asked the Lord Privy Seal what has been the expenditure of the United Nations on the United Nations 8W Economic Commission for Europe for each of the five years 1958 to 1962 inclusive; and what has been the United Kingdom contribution to this expenditure in those years, taking the United Kingdom contribution as 7.58 per cent. of the total.
§ Mr. Heath
Official figures are not available, because the expenditure of the Economic Commission for Europe is an integral part of the expenditure of the United Nations European Office in Geneva and is not shown separately in the United Nations budget. The following figures are estimates of the expenditure of the Economic Commission for Europe and of Her Majesty's Government's share, calculated on the basis of the United Kingdom contribution to the regular budget of the United Nations.
