§ MR. HANBURY (Preston)
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty what amount was spent on the Naval Ordnance Vote between 7th December, at which date only £697,000 had been expended, and 31st March, the end of the financial year?
§ THE FIRST LORD OF THE ADMIRALTY (Lord G. HAMILTON,) Middlesex, Ealing
According to the latest Returns, the amount actually expended under the Naval Ordnance Vote up to the 7th of December last was £901,000. The expenditure for the whole year cannot yet be accurately stated, but it is considered that it will not fall far short of the total Estimate—namely, £1,863,500.
