§ SIR HENRY WILLOUGHBY
said, he wished to ask the Secretary at War to explain what was the cause of the deficiency in last year's Army Estimates?
§ MR. SIDNEY HERBERT
said, the main cause of the deficiency arose from the East India Company not having repaid within the year the sum of £400,000, which was due from them to the Government. That sum had since been repaid, and would be carried to the expense of the current year. There were, besides, some trifling deficiencies which he would explain when he moved the Army Estimates.
§ House adjourned at Six Minutes before Six o'clock.
