HC Deb 27 November 1912 vol 44 c1283W

asked the Postmaster-General whether, in the event of an increase in Imperial taxation in Ireland due to expenditure upon purely domestic British purposes, it is intended that a Grant equivalent to such increased taxation shall be added to the Transferred Sum; if so what authority is to decide whether any particular expenditure is for a purely British purpose; and what authority is to decide the correct amount of the equivalent Grant?


All these matters will be entirely within the discretion of the Parliament of the United Kingdom when the occasion arises.
