§ 22. Mr. RAFFAN
asked the Secretary of State for War whether there is any expenditure arising out of the military operations in Ireland which falls on any Vote other than that of the War Office; and, if so, what is the expenditure in question and on what Vote it falls?
§ 23. Mr. KILEY
asked the Secretary of State for War whether there is any capital expenditure for military purposes in Ireland which was not included in the estimate recently given of the monthly rate of military expenditure there; and, if so, what is the estimate for this capital expenditure in respect of the present financial year?
§ 24. Mr. KENYON
asked the Secretary of State for War whether there has been any increase or diminution in the rate of military expenditure in Ireland since he estimated the monthly rate at £1,150,000?
§ Mr. CHURCHILL
I know of no reason to amend the estimated rate of expenditure given on 26th October. That rate included capital expenditure. The military activities involve charges also on the Votes of the Air Ministry, the amount of which is being given in answer to a 1097 later question (No. 33). As regards any consequential or incidental charges on Civil Votes, I must refer the hon. Members to my hon. Friend the Financial Secretary to the Treasury.
