§ MR. LABOUCHERE
asked Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer, Whether he will either state to the House, or present in a Return to the House, the amount of all moneys expended (inclusive of the value of stores, military or otherwise) in or on Egypt, which have been paid, or which are to be paid, by this Country, from January 1st 1878, until the recent arrival of Lord Wolseley in Egypt?
§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER (Mr. CHILDERS)
My hon. Friend's Question presents some difficulty, and it would be necessary to confer with several Departments. If he will put it again next week, I hope to give him an answer.
