HC Deb 15 May 1907 vol 174 c935
MR. FIELD (Dublin, St. Patrick)

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he can state, outside the ordinary sources of Revenue, Customs, Excise, and Post Office, what has been the average annual amount of miscellaneous revenue for the last ten years; and whether it has been applied to Irish purposes, or how it has been otherwise expended.

(Answered by Mr. Runciman.) The amounts derived each year from Ireland under the head of "Miscellaneous Revenue" are shown in the annual Financial Relations Returns. The average amount during the last ten years has been approximately £120,000. These receipts are paid into the Exchequer and applied in meeting the charges on the Exchequer, including the charge for Irish services.
