§ 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., 1092.1334 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.
§ MR. LYTTELTON
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.
