HC Deb 03 August 1916 vol 85 cc488-9
45. Mr. HOGGE

asked the Prime Minister whether he can now state to what use the Government propose to put the Royal gift of £100,000?


After a review of the various other suggestions, the Government have come to the conclusion, of which His Majesty has expressed approval, that his generous gift would be most appropriately devoted to the general purposes of the War.
