HC Deb 16 May 1906 vol 157 cc471-2
SIR J. DICKSON-POYNDER (Wiltshire, Chippenham)

I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies, what amount now remains unexpended of the £3,000,000 sterling allocated to land settlement in South Africa from the £35,000,000 loan.


Up to February 26th last a total sum of £2,351,924 had been issued from the loan for land settlement out of £2,500,000 voted for that purpose. As the hon. Member is no doubt aware, £500,000 has not yet been voted, owing to the fact that there has been excess expenditure under other heads of the loan.
