§ 48. Colonel DAY
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if the Local Loans Fund Accounts for the year 1923–24 have been submitted to the Comptroller and Auditor-General for audit; if so, on what date were they submitted; and can he explain the delay?
§ Mr. CHURCHILL
I understand that these Accounts are being sent to the Comptroller and Auditor-General forthwith, their preparation having been delayed by the necessity of examining the statements of collections for the year furnished by the Governments of Northern Ireland and the Irish Free State in respect of loans from the Fund outstanding in Ireland.
