HC Deb 23 January 1902 vol 101 cc654-5
MR. M'CRAE (Edinburgh, E.)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether, having regard to the disbursement from the Treasury of £46,300,000 to 31st December last, on account of war expenditure in South Africa for the current financial year, and to the fact that the actual expenditure incurred is likely to exceed that amount, he can inform the House when an opportunity will be given for considering the further supply necessary for the present financial year for the prosecution of the war.


I hope very shortly to be able to introduce the Supplementary Estimates.


Will it be before or after the new Rules of Procedure are brought forward?


That I cannot say.
