§ MR. SCLATER-BOOTH
asked the House to go into Committee of Supply to pass a Vote on Account. He made the proposal on the supposition that it would be impossible to take all the Votes before the 1st of July, when several half-yearly payments were to be made.
§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER
We only took a Vote on Account for six weeks on the last occasion, and it is necessary to take one now. The money we now ask for will last until the middle of July.
§ SUPPLY—considered in Committee.
§ (In the Committee.)
§ Resolved, That a further sum, not exceeding £1,412,000, be granted to Her Majesty, on account, for or towards defraying the Charge for the following Civil Services, to the 31st day of March 1869.
§ [Then the several Services are set forth.]
