§ MR. CLANCY (Dublin, County N.)
To ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will grant a Return showing the payments into and out of the Development Grant (Ireland) Fund since its institution to the present time, and particularly the balances to the credit of the fund in each financial year.
(Answered by Mr. Bryce.) My right hon. friend has asked me to reply to this Question. It is provided by Section 1 (5) of The Ireland Development Grant Act, 1903, that the Lord-Lieutenant shall, as soon as may be after the close of each financial year, make a Report to Parliament of all his proceedings under the Act. This provision has been duly observed, and the information desired will be found in the Reports. The latest Report, dated 19th May, 1905, is published as House of Commons Paper [Cd. 2539] of that year.
