§ 80. Sir GEORGE YOUNGER
asked the Secretary to the Treasury whether certain Grants for salmon-marking in Scotland sanctioned by the Development Commissioners have not been paid; whether he is aware that owing to this delay it is improbable that anything can now be done this season; and what is the reason for those dilatory proceedings?
§ Mr. MASTERMAN
The Development Commissioners have recommended certain Grants for this purpose and the Treasury have sanctioned a Grant on their recommendation, but no money can be paid until it has been voted on the Estimates, and the experiments have accordingly been postponed for the current financial year.
§ Sir G. YOUNGER
Then am I to understand that this is postponed because the Treasury cannot find time to pass Supplementary Estimates owing to the whole time of the House being given to revolutionary measures?
