§ Colonel GRETTON
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will furnish a full statement of accounts for the financial year ending 31st March, 1923, as between the British Exchequer and the Irish Free State, showing receipts and payments and the value of lands, buildings, and other property taken over by the Free State, and the value of all materials, arms, equipments, stores, etc., supplied by the British Government; and the estimated receipts and payments for the financial year ending 31st March, 1924?
§ Mr. BALDWIN
I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the answer I gave him on the 21st February last. It is not possible at present to give any full statement as regards the year just closed. I do not understand the reference to the current year, as from 1st April last the Free State collects its own revenue.
