CAPTAIN COLOMB&c.,) (Tower Hamlets, Bow,
asked the Secretary of State for War, Whether, in his Memorandum accompanying next year's Army Estimates, or in some other form, he will endeavour to furnish information as to the approximate total annual charges for the transport of troops, for the supply and conveyance of purely military stores, and for the maintenance of garrisons at each of our naval coal depôts abroad?
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE (Mr. E. STANHOPE) () Lincolnshire, Horncastle
Before the next Army Estimates are prepared, I will see how far it may be practicable to give the information referred to in my hon. and gallant Friend's Question, either in a Memorandum attached to them, or in some other form.
