HC Deb 16 May 1906 vol 157 cc473-4
MR. LAURENCE HARDY (Kent, Ashford)

I beg to ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he can now give an estimate of the expenditure out of the Exchequer in consequence of the operation of the repatriation order now in force in the Transvaal whether he has made provision for this expenditure in the Budget; and whether an opportunity will be given in Supply this session for discussing directly this expenditure which has been authorised by His Majesty's Government.


It will be impossible to make any estimate until it becomes evident to what extent the Chinese are likely to avail themselves of the offer which has been made to them. No special provision has been made in the Budget, but, if and when it becomes necessary to ask the House to sanction any expenditure for the purpose, full opportunity will be given for discussion.

Forward to
