HC Deb 05 August 1887 vol 318 cc1370-1
MR. DE LISLE (Leicestershire, Mid)

asked the Secretary of State for War, Whether, in view of the recent Reports of the Royal Commission on Ordnance Stores, and the Report of Lord Morley's Committee, Her Majesty's Government will appoint a Committee at once to investigate the present organization of the Ordnance Store Department of the Army, the War Office having long since de- cided that such a Committee was necessary, and that grievances exist in that Department which demand inquiry?

THE SECRETARY OF STATE (Mr. E. STANHOPE) (Lincolnshire, Horncastle)

I do not think that another Committee would add anything substantial to the information we now have. I have already stated that the whole organization of these Departments is under ray consideration, and that I hope shortly to make known my proposals.
