HC Deb 19 March 1925 vol 181 c2474

also asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he can arrange in the weekly revenue and expenditure return for the expenditure on supply services to be analysed under the respective headings of Army, Navy, Air Force, Civil Services and Revenue Departments?


No, Sir. Owing to the pooling of balances with the Paymaster-General, the issues for each Department do not over short periods give any indication of the actual expenditure of the Department and an analysis of the kind asked for in the question would be merely misleading. The figures are analysed as far as possible in the quarterly returns.
