§ SIR E. ASHMEAD-BARTLETT
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War whether the attention of Her Majesty's Government has been called to a description by the Daily News correspondent of the tents provided for the British regiments in the Soudan as ragged and wholly unsuitable for the climate; and whether suitable tents will be provided?
§ MR. BRODRICK
No complaint has been received as to the tents issued to the British regiments in the Soudan. They are of the Indian pattern, obtained direct from Bombay, and are considered suitable for a hot climate.
