§ GENERAL SIR GEORGE BALFOUR
asked Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer, Whether the Treasury has kept up the Statement of the Cost of Royal Commissions, and if a Continuous Return of Return 261, of 1867, can be rendered, but without the Appendix and so made out as to show the total charge for these Commissions, including the Amount in Return 196, of Session 2, of 1859?
§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER (Mr. CHILDERS)
Sir, I will give directions for the preparation of this Account; but in a concise form. The particulars are annually given by the Comptroller and Auditor General, whose Report my hon. Friend has doubtless studied with his usual care.
