§ COLONEL EYRE (Lincolnshire, Gainsborough)
asked the Secretary of State for War, Whether he can show, in a separate column in the Army Estimates, the expenditure in connection with Brigade Depots, and the average number of men of all ranks quartered there?
THE FINANCIAL SECRETARY, WAR DEPARTMENT (Mr. BRODRICK)(who replied) (Surrey, Guildford)
said: There would be no difficulty in showing the average number of men present at regimental district headquarters; but in such cases of fluctuating numbers it would scarcely be possible to give the expenditure as apart from that of the Service Companies. Probably if my hon. and gallant Friend would explain to me personally what information he really wants I might be able to meet his wishes.
