HC Deb 19 March 1946 vol 420 c1691
70. Dr. Little

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury the amount ex pended on the reserved services of Northern Ireland for the current year.

Mr. Glenvil Hall

The estimate is £ 3,374,000.

Dr. Little

Will the hon. Gentleman say what becomes of the difference between £ 34,500,000 paid into the British Exchequer this year from Northern Ireland, and the sum he gives as devoted to the reserved services? Does this amount come back to Northern Ireland?
