§ 69. Viscount WOLMER
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether the Geddes Committee have been asked to inquire into the operations of the Navy and Army and Air Force institutes; and, if so, whether the accounts of that body have been laid before the Committee?
§ Sir R. HORNE
The institutes are not borne on voted moneys, and their expenditure is not therefore within the terms of reference of the Committee on National Expenditure.
§ Viscount WOLMER
Were not these institutes financed with Government money? Have they not incurred vast losses during the last three years and yet refuse to publish a balance sheet?
