§ MAJOR ANSTRUTHER-GRAY
I beg to ask the Prime Minister what amount will fall to be paid by Scotland of the £600,000 which the Government proposes to devote to the new Irish Council.
§ THE PRIME MINISTER AND FIRST LORD OF THE TREASURY (Sir H. CAMPBELL-BANNERMAN,) Stirling Burghs
The additional amount proposed to be allocated to Ireland out of the proceeds of the taxation of the United Kingdom generally under the Irish Council Bill is £650,000. The contribution of the taxpayers of Scotland to this amount would, I take it, be in the same proportion as their contribution to English, Scottish, and Irish services generally, of which annual Returns are presented to the House.
