HC Deb 16 April 1875 vol 223 cc1109-10

, asked the Secretary of State for War, Whether he would (excluding the parts that are Departmental and therefore confidential) lay upon the Table of the House the Statistical Tables and Numerical Returns attached to the Report of the late Committee on Recruiting, so as to enable the valuable information contained therein to be considered by honourable Members previously to Tuesday, the 20th instant, on which day an important Motion regarding the recruiting and efficiency of the Army will be brought forward for consideration?


, in reply, said, that he had that afternoon received the Appendices to the Report of the late Committee on Recruiting, and had gone through them as rapidly as he could. He had given directions that the tables to which the hon. and gallant Baronet had referred should be printed and given as quickly as possible to the House; but he could not state that they would be ready in time for the debate on the subject.
