§ Mr. DUNNICO
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer the total amount paid in interest and expenses upon the National Debt from the year 1800 to 1913?
§ Mr. NEVILLE CHAMBERLAIN
The sums paid each year from the financial year ended 5th January, 1836, onwards are set out in the Return Cd. 7994 of 1914, of which I am sending the hon. Member a copy. To extract the particulars for earlier years would involve an expenditure of time and labour hardly to be justified by the importance of the results.
