MR. PHILIPPS (Lanark Mid)
asked the Secretary of State for War the amount of the salary and allowances of the Governor of Guernsey; how much of this is contributed by Guernsey and how much by the Imperial Exchequer; and, whether the Government will 576 undertake that the present vacancy in this post shall not be filled up till Parliament has bad an opportunity of pronouncing an opinion on the necessity of the office?
§ MR. E. STANHOPE
The Lieutenant Governor of Guernsey, who also commands the troops on the island and in Alderney, receives from Army funds £1,700 a year (consolidated pay) and something under £80 a year from Crown lands. I cannot undertake to abstain from filling up the post as suggested in the Question.
