§ SIR JAMES FERGUSSON (Manchester, N.E.)
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether the gratuity granted to officers and men of the Army for war service in South Africa will be extended to corresponding ratings in the officers and men of the Fleet who have served in the Naval Brigades in the field.
§ THE FIRST LORD OF THE TREASURY (Mr. A. J. BALFOUR,) Manchester, E.
I can answer at once in the affirmative on the general question, but I cannot deal with details on the present occasion.
§ * SIR JOHN COLOMB (Great Yarmouth)
Will the forces engaged in the relief of Coomassie be included?
