§ MR. WADDY
asked Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer, Whether the "Account of the Gross Income and Expenditure for the year ending 31st March 1879," presented pursuant to the Act 38 and 39 Vic. c. 45, s. 4, can be presented to the House so soon as to be printed and delivered to honourable Members before the adjournment of the House for the Easter Recess?
§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER,
in reply, said, that the Account referred to by the hon. and learned Member could not be delivered before Easter, because the Act allowed the Treasury 15 days after the close of the year to make it up, and it had then to be submitted to the Controller and Auditor General.
