(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.


asked the hon. Gentleman the Financial Secretary to the Treasury, if he would explain why the grant to Lord Alcester was £25,000, 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.


believed that that was so.

Question put, and agreed to.

Resolution to be reported To-morrow.
