§ 1. £130 (Supplementary), Friendly Societies Registry.
§ MR. MORTON (Sutherland)
thought the Department ought to give an explanation why there was this increase of £130. It was in his opinion necessary to study economy, and he did not therefore think he need make any apology for drawing attention even to this small increase. He wished to know why it was that the original provision had not proved sufficient.
§ THE FINANCIAL SECRETARY TO THE TREASURY (Mr. MCKENNA,) Monmouth, N.
said the excess was due to the appointment of a second Assistant Registrar, rendered necessary by the great increase in the amount of work. The actual salary was £600 a year, rising by annual instalments of £25 to £700. He thought his hon. friend might rest assured that no extravagant expenditure would be incurred.
§ Motion put and agreed to.
