HC Deb 25 July 1831 vol 5 cc279-80
Mr. Spring Rice

moved, that the sum of 550,000l. be granted to his Majesty to defray the extraordinary expenses of the Army for 1831.

Mr. Robert Gordon

expected, that in future these expenses would be arranged into different classes: the salary of the Bishop of Barbadoes was formerly inserted in the vote for Army Extraordinaries.—Agreed to.

The sum of 393,043l. was voted for the Commissariat Department.

Mr. Spring Rice,

in moving the vote for law expenses in Scotland, said, it was right he should state, that hitherto the charge had been paid out of the Excise and Customs duties levied in Scotland.—The sum of 39,835l. was accordingly granted to defray certain charges in Scot- land, hitherto defrayed out of the revenue arising from the Excise and Customs duties.
