I beg to ask the Financial Secretary to the -War Office whether he can state what decision has been arrived at by the inquiry respecting the supply of foreign meat, oats, and hay to the troops in Ireland; and, whether he will lay upon the Table Copies of said Report, or furnish them to Members of the House?
THE FINANCIAL SECRETARY TO THE WAR OFFICE (Mr. POWELL-WILLIAMS,) Birmingham, S.
A statement upon this subject will be made when the War Office Estimate is under discussion.
asked at about what date the reply might be expected. They had already waited a long time for it.
MR POWELL WILLIAMS
said that he understood that the War office Estimate was not likely to be taken, at any rate, within a fortnight; but the Question was one for the right hon. Gentleman the First Lord of the Treasury to decide.
