HC Deb 07 July 1868 vol 193 c831

(2.) £1,024,653, Customs Department.


commended the economical administration of this Department, and said it was an example which he thought might be advantageously imitated in the Admiralty and other Departments; but he ought to have remembered the Customs existed for the collection of money and the other offices seemingly only for the purpose of spending it.

Vote agreed to.
