HC Deb 22 February 1884 vol 284 c1727

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury, When Parliament will be asked to vote the money which is now being expended in and about the Soudan and in and about Egypt?


My hon. Friend has probably not noticed that the Chancellor of the Exchequer has already twice answered this Question. But, as he is no doubt aware, the Committee of Supply cannot be set up until the Report of the Address is agreed to. So soon as this shall have been done the necessary Supplementary Estimates will be presented, which shall include the additional charges in the current year on account of the operations in question.
