§ MR. NORRIS (Tower Hamlets, Limehouse)
I beg to ask the Financial Secretary for War whether he can state if it is a fact, as reported, that more than 30 men who took part in the Charge of the Light Brigade at Balaclava are now in absolute want; if so, whether any steps have been or will be taken to afford them some relief; and if any balance remains out of the Patriotic Fund, or if there is any other fund applicable to such a purpose?
§ MR. BRODRICK
I must ask the hon. Member to postpone the question until my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State can be present.
