HC Deb 02 August 1905 vol 150 cc1333-4
MR. EMMOTT (Oldham)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether his attention has been drawn to the statement in Cd. 2564 that the † See (4) Debates, cxli., 1092. Parliamentary grant for 1905–6 to Northern Nigeria is £375,000, whilst the grant-in-aid in our own Civil Service Estimates, page 456, is stated to be £320,000; and what is the explanation of this apparent discrepancy.


A note should have been added to the estimates for Northern (and I may add Southern) Nigeria, printed in Cd. 2564, to the effect that the figures there given were subject to revision. The correct amount of the grant-in-aid is £320,000.
