HC Deb 22 March 1917 vol 91 cc2141-2

Resolution reported,

"That it is expedient to authorise the repayment to local authorities, out of moneys to be provided by Parliament, of part of such expenses of local and district committees established under the Naval and Military War Pensions, etc., Act, 1915, as under any Act of the present Session to make provision with respect to the administrative expenses of the Statutory Committee and of local and district committees as aforesaid, or any enactment repealed by that Act, may be or have been defrayed by local authorities."

Motion made, and Question proposed, "That this House doth agree with the Committee in the said Resolution."


Supposing on Monday we move to put the whole expenses of the administration of these committees on the Treasury, would we be in order if we agree to this Resolution?


The hon. Member cannot do so without the consent of the Crown.

Question put, and agreed to.
