HC Deb 13 March 1923 vol 161 cc1275-6
70. Major WARING

asked the Under-Secretary to the Scottish Board of Health the amount of money now standing to the credit of the Development Commissioners?


Excluding the Corn Repeal moneys and a gift from the Red Cross for specific purposes, the balance on the Development Fund on the 10th instant was £400,375, including cash and investments at cost price. There are, however, considerable commitments to be set against this sum; and, as the hon. and gallant Member will observe from the Estimate for the Vote on Account, it has been found necessary to ask Parliament to vote a further sum of £250,000 in 1923–24.
