said, he wished to ask the Under Secretary of State for War, Whether he will undertake that the Account of the Military Reserve Fund shall in future be made up to the 31st day of December in each year, so that it may be laid upon the table of the House together with the Army Estimates; and whether the Account of the above Fund is regularly audited, and by whom?
THE MARQUESS OF HARTINGTON
said, in reply, that the authorities at the War Office had no objection to undertake that the Account in that case should for the future be made up to the 31st of December in each year instead of the 31st of March, which was the period hitherto selected. In reply to the second part of the question, he had to state that the auditing of that account would henceforth be placed under the direction of the Auditor recently appointed at the War Office.
