§ 6. Mr. GRETTON
asked why the income from the charges levied by Imperial officers for lighthouse dues, estimated to amount in 1911–12 to £466,000, and the expenditure therefrom upon lighthouses, are omitted from the Estimates of national expenditure intended to show the aggregate estimated expenditure for the year; and will the Chancellor of the Exchequer give directions that in future the lighthouse dues and the lighthouse expenditure shall be inserted in the statement of estimated income and expenditure?
§ Mr. LLOYD GEORGE
The income and expenditure of the General Lighthouse Fund are not, and never have been, regarded as forming part of the public income and expenditure of the United Kingdom.
