HC Deb 11 June 1868 vol 192 c1395

said, he would beg to ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer, Whether the five Foreign Cattle Market Commissioners who may be appointed under the provisions of the Metropolitan Foreign Cattle Market Bill are to be paid out of monies to be provided by Parliament; and whether, in case the Commissioners should be the market authority, and the market should not pay its expenses, it is intended that the deficiency shall be charged upon the public Revenues; and, whether he proposes to introduce a Money Clause in the Metropolitan Foreign Cattle Market Bill to provide for the above charges?


said, in reply, that he understood from the Privy Council that they supposed the Foreign Cattle Market would be self-supporting. At all events, he did not propose to place any sum on the public expenditure, either for the payment of the Commissioners or the expenses of the market.
