HC Deb 01 June 1896 vol 41 cc221-2

I beg to ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, how it is proposed to meet the additional outlay of £500,000 in the present financial year on the Uganda Railway?


Perhaps the right hon. Gentleman will allow me to answer that question? A Bill will at once be introduced authorising the necessary payments from the Consolidated Fund, and authorising the Treasury for that purpose to borrow by terminable annuities for periods not exceeding 30 years. Those annuities are to be paid out of the moneys annually provided by Parliament for the foreign and colonial services, and, if these are insufficient, out of the Consolidated Fund. The excess of receipts over annual working expenses will be paid into the Exchequer.
