Motion made, and Question proposed,
That a Supplementary sum, not exceeding £700, 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, 1934, for the Salaries and Expenses of the Department of His Majesty's Most Honourable Privy Council.
§ 3.11 p.m.
§ The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the TREASURY (Mr. Hore-Belisha)
It now appears probable that the Judicial Fees payable to the Privy Council Office will produce only £4,300, instead of £5,000, making a shortage of £700 for which we are asking. Receipts from fees, of course, cannot be gauged accurately in advance as there is always some risk of failure to realise the estimate. I trust that the Committee will consider that sufficient explanation of why there has been the shortage of £700.
§ Question put, and agreed to.
