HC Deb 07 July 1904 vol 137 c957
MR. CATHCART WASON (Orkney and Shetland)

I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if, in view of the fact that the Estimates, Class 5, Vote 2, only show the gross sums necessary for the East Africa and Uganda Protectorates, he will supply more detailed Estimates for the use of Members of the House.


No, Sir. The Estimates are presented in the same form as the Estimates for the protectorates which are under the control of the Colonial Office and it is not proposed to alter the existing practice.


They are not Estimates but merely a statement of the grant in-aid.
