§ 44. Captain LODER
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will consider the advisability of issuing this year, and also in future, a memorandum explanatory of the Civil Estimates and Estimates for Revenue Departments (Vote on Account) similar to those issued with the Army, Navy, and Air Force Estimates?
§ Mr. CHURCHILL
It is, as my hon. and gallant Friend is no doubt aware, the practice to issue a full memorandum as part of the volume of Civil Estimates; but owing to the fact that it is necessary to take the Vote on Account before this volume appears, the Estimate for this Vote is issued without any explanation of the variations from the previous year. I will therefore lay before the House a brief preliminary memorandum on the Civil Estimates for 1929.
