HC Deb 26 June 1866 vol 184 c683

said, he wished to ask the Chairman of the Select Committee on Public Accounts, Whether the Committee have examined the Audited Accounts of the Army and Militia Services for the year 1864–5; whether their attention has been drawn to the Report of the Board of Audit, dated March 12, 1866, stating certain inaccuracies in those Accounts; and, when the Report of the Committee is likely to be laid upon the table of the House?


said, that the Committee on Public Accounts had not met for some weeks past, though it had transacted a great deal of business in the early part of the Session. The inaccuracies referred to by the hon. Baronet related chiefly to matters of form and were carefully taken into consideration last year. He might add that further inquiries were going on at the present time.
