HC Deb 05 April 1883 vol 277 c1479

asked the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, Whether he can now state when the Estimate for the Expenses connected with the Coronation of the Czar will be presented to the House; whether it is intended to ask for an additional sum of money to that now set down in the Estimates for Her Majesty's Resident Ambassador at St. Petersburg; and, whether, if so, he will, in the Estimate which is to be presented to the House, distinguish between the amount asked for the Special Embassy on the occasion of the Coronation and that asked for Her Majesty's Resident Ambassador?


An approximate Supplementary Estimate is being prepared, and will be laid on the Table as soon as possible. It will contain the information in detail which my hon. Friend desires.
