§ 66. Sir W. MITCHELL-THOMSON
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether the accounts and balance sheet of the British Phosphate Commission have been or will be presented to Parliament?
§ Mr. SNOWDEN
The accounts of the British Phosphate Commission will be included in the annual volume of Trading Accounts of Government Departments.
§ Sir W. MITCHELL-THOMSON
Can the right hon. Gentleman say that we shall have that in our hands before we are asked to pass the Colonial Office Supplementary Estimate; does he realise that in that Estimate he is asking the taxpayer to put up another £100,000 for this adventure; and cannot we have the accounts before we are asked to deal with them?
