HC Deb 13 June 1907 vol 175 c1594
MR. BYLES (Salford, N.)

I beg to ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he has received from the Royal Patriotic Fund Corporation any application for a Treasury grant of money in aid of the funds of the said corporation; and what answer has been returned.


An application was received in March last, and the reply of the Treasury was to the effect that, after considering the question in consultation with the War Office, they did not feel able to depart from a previous decision that they would not be justified in asking Parliament to provide by Vote any sum to supplement the present available resources of the fund.
