Motion made, and Question proposed,
That a Supplementary sum not exceeding£660, be granted to His Majesty, to defray the Charge which will come in course of payment during the year ending on the 31st day of March, 1933, for the Salaries and Expenses of the Department of His Majesty's Most Honourable Privy Council.
§ 7.10 p.m.
§ Mr. HORE-BELISHA
The Committee will see that, whereas the Estimate was 1525 £6,000 in the current year for the Judicial Office of the Privy Council, we have received a less sum, which obliges us to come to the House and ask for this£660. Business, as the Committee is aware, has been bad and has reflected itself in litigation, with the result that our Appropriation-in-Aid has not been as great as otherwise it would have been.
