HC Deb 29 May 1924 vol 174 cc588-9
43. Colonel GRETTON

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer when he will lay a Paper showing the accounts as between the Irish Free State and the British Treasury op to 31st March this year and if the statement will give details under the items in the accounts and of any sums of money outstanding?


I hope that the Paper which is being prepared will be ready for presentation next week. Details of the amounts paid, and the sums outstanding, will be given under the heads of Part I of the Financial Statement presented to Parliament by the late Government last year (Command Paper 1930).


Is not the Command Paper inadequate, its details not being sufficient to give a real view of the situation?


Is account taken in the White Paper of spirits imported from the Free State into this country?


I urn afraid that does not arise out of the question. Might I ask the hon. Member opposite to await the publication of this Paper next week, and if there is any further information he requires, I shall be happy to obtain it.

Forward to
