§ LORD RANDOLPH CHURCHILL (Paddington, S.)
drew attention to a Return moved for by him showing—(1) The Annual Votes for Stores and Munitions of War from 1870–1 to 1886–7, exclusive of Votes of Credit; (2) The amounts allotted out of Votes of Credit and Supplementary Estimates, during the same period, for purchase of Stores and Munitions of War; (3) The a mounts allotted to the Navy out of Annual Votes; and (4) The amounts allotted to the Navy out of Votes of Credit and Supplementary Estimates.The noble Lord said, that for some unaccountable reason a Notice of opposition had been placed against it by the hon. Member for Mid Cork (Dr. Tanner), and he now begged to move that the Motion for the Return be withdrawn and the Order discharged, for the reason that the Secretary of State for War had kindly promised to lay the information before Parliament on his own initiative.
§ Motion, by leave, withdrawn.
§ Order discharged.
