HC Deb 12 August 1904 vol 140 cc407-8

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if he will explain why the £1,000 which appeared on the original Estimate for the Ireland Development Grant, as the first instalment towards the draining of the Bann, has been omitted from the revised Estimate.

(Answered by Mr. Wyndham.) I refer my hon. friend to the explanatory statement made by me on Wednesday last in Committee of Supply.†
