§ MR. BARBOUR (Paisley)
I beg to ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if the £40,000 he purposes to give to Scotland is to be divided proportionately between the Burgh and County Councils or given to County Councils only; if to County Councils only, can he state on what principle this decision has been arrived at?
§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER (Mr. GOSCHEN,) St. George's, Hanover Square
The sum in question, which amounts to £50,000, and not to £40,000, as stated by the hon. Member, will be divided proportionately between Burgh and County Councils.
