§ COLONEL BROOKFIELD (Sussex, Rye)
asked the Secretary of State for War, Whether, in the recent campaigns on the Nile, a large proportion, or all, of the rations issued to Her Majesty's troops were supplied by American contractors
§ THE SURVEYOR GENERAL OF ORDNANCE (Mr. WOODALL) (Hanley)
(who replied) said, it was not true that any large proportion of the rations issued to Her Majesty's troops had been supplied by American contractors. As a matter of fact, the rations supplied to the troops on the Nile comprised about 24 different articles, and of those one article only was mainly, though not exclusively, supplied by an American contractor.
