§ MR. ALFRED DAVIES (Carmarthen Boroughs)
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury if he can give the lowest and highest prices paid per ton for the hire of transports during the African war, the names of the steamers, their owners, size, speed performed, and the dates on which they were chartered.
§ THE CIVIL LORD OF THE ADMIRALTY (Captain PRETYMAN,) Suffolk, Woodbridge
It would be quite impossible to give the information asked for by the hon. Member within the limits of an answer to a question without running the risk of giving a misleading impression, 823 but if the hon. Member will call at the Admiralty every endeavour will be made to give him the information he desires.
