§ 25. Sir NICHOLAS GRATTAN-DOYLE
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs to what use the unexpended balances of sums issued to the Empire Marketing Board have been put in each of the following years: 1926–27, 1927–28, 1928–29, and 1929–30?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for DOMINION AFFAIRS (Mr. Lunn)
The unexpended balances of sums issued to the Empire Marketing Board are not liable to surrender. The balance at the end of any financial year remains in the Empire Marketing Fund and is used to meet expenditure incurred by the Board in the succeeding year.
§ Mr. ALBERY
Can the hon. Gentleman say whether, under existing circumstances, some of this surplus money could not be usefully employed?
§ Mr. SMITHERS
Would the hon. Gentleman say how much money stands to the credit of the Empire Marketing Board at the present moment?
