§ SIB JOHN LUBBOCK
asked Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer, Whether, as Sir E. Baring, in his Despatch of the 3rd November 1884, stated that a Return of the Revenue and Expenditure of Egypt would always be available ten days after the close of each month, he would lay upon the Table such a Return for the year 1884?
§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER (Mr. CHILDERS)
No, Sir; we have a provisional account, but the Annual Return has not yet arrived in a complete state. I have asked Earl Granville to telegraph for it, and as soon as it arrives, and I have had time to examine it, I hope to arrange that it be laid on the Table.
