§ (In the Committee.)
Motion made, and Question proposed,
That it is expedient to authorise the grant of a sum of £30,000, out of the Consolidated Fund of the United Kingdom, to Garnet Joseph, Lord Wolseley, General in Her Majesty's Army, in lieu of the Annuity of Two thousand pounds per annum, which was proposed to be granted to him in answer to the Message from Her Majesty on the 13th day of April last.
§ MR. R. N. FOWLER
asked the hon. Gentleman the Financial Secretary to the Treasury, if he would explain why the grant to Lord Alcester was £25,000, 1076 while that for Lord Wolseley was £30,000? He supposed that Lord Wolseley was to receive a larger amount, because he was a younger man than Lord Alcester.
§ Question put, and agreed to.
§ Resolution to be reported To-morrow.
