HC Deb 07 June 1864 vol 175 cc1352-3

said, he wished to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, Whether it is intended to surrender to the Exchequer the £93,163 remaining in the Paymaster General's hands out of the Votes of Credit for China?


, in reply, said, the details of the expenditure had not as yet been made up. There were certain outstanding claims which would have to be met, and it was necessary for the Government to keep a sum in hand to dispose of them. When they were liquidated the balance would be paid into the Treasury.
