Motion made, and Question proposed,
That a Supplementary sum, not exceeding £10, 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, 1936, for the Salaries and Expenses of the Offices of the House of Lords.
§ 7.17 p.m.
§ Mr. W. S. MORRISON
This small token Vote is for a small additional demand caused by two items. One is a restoration of cuts in salary amounting to £539, and there is another item of £200 due to the fact that the expense of providing shorthand writers for committees proved somewhat heavier than was expected. The total is £739, but it is expected that the Appropriation-in-Aid will be up some £5,200, consequently this is a token Vote only. The remainder of the excess will be paid in the usual way into the Exchequer.
