MR. T. M. HEALY
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury if he can state what has been the annual expenditure for the past ten years on Kew Gardens, London, and the Botanical Gardens, Dublin.
§ MR. HANBURY
The total gross expenditure from 1890–1 to 1899–1900 was —On Kew Gardens, £261,408 5s. 10d.; on the Botanical Gardens, Glasnevin, £18,769 6s. 1d.
Mr. T. M. HEALY
Will the right hon. Gentleman be good enough to consult the Secretary for the Colonies as to the desirability of making an extra grant for the Botanical Gardens, Dublin?
