32. Mr. MacCALLUM SCOTT
asked the Secretary for the Colonies, if he will state on what principle it has been arranged that £21,403 18s. 3d. is charged for the Rhodesian Mines Department as administrative expenditure for Southern Rhodesia, whereas at the same time no part of the Southern Rhodesia mining revenue has been credited as administrative revenue for the year ending 31st March, 1913?
It is wrong to suppose that no part of Southern Rhodesia mining revenue is credited as administrative revenue. The gross administrative mining revenue was £33,069 4s. 3d., and the net was £29,533 8s. 10d. This is included under the heading "Stamps and Licences."
