HC Deb 09 February 1897 vol 46 c18
MR. J. McKILLOP (Stirlingshire)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War whether he will state how many soldiers have been conveyed between Scotland and London, and vice versâ annually since 1890; how many were conveyed by rail, and how many by steamer; and, if he will state the cost of conveying each soldier by rail and by steamer re spectively?


A Return giving the particulars stated in the question can be compiled if my hon. Friend moves for it; but its preparation will give considerable trouble, and I am not aware that it will answer any useful purpose.
