§ MR. FIELD
To ask the Secretary to the Treasury whether, seeing that the Colonial Audit Branch in London received free housing accommodation, fire, and light at the expense of the Imperial Government for seventeen years prior to 1906, he will explain why the Comptroller and Auditor-General wrote off a point on this subject when it was raised by a subordinate.
(Answered by Mr. Runciman.) No, Sir; I cannot undertake to ask or to give an explanation of the reasons which led the Comptroller and Auditor-General to differ from his subordinate.
