HC Deb 16 March 1896 vol 38 c1026
SIR CHARLES DILKE (Gloucester, Forest of Dean)

I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury, whether it has been computed what amount will be expended from loan in the year 1896–7 for matters connected with Military and Naval expenditure, such, for example, as barracks and Naval works?


The estimated figures of expenditure on barracks and Naval works in the year 1896–7 are—for Barracks Act, £600,000, which will be provided by loan; and for Naval works, which will be provided according to the proposals in the Naval Works Bill, a maximum sum of £2,750,000.
