HC Deb 15 December 1900 vol 88 cc877-8

I beg to ask the Financial Secretary to the War Office what has been the strength of the contingents sent to South Africa by the Dominion of Canada, the group of the Australian Colonies included in the Commonwealth of Australia Bill, and the Colony of New Zealand respectively; what the number of men from each invalided home; and what the number of men from each allowed to leave otherwise than as invalids.

MR. J. POWELL-WILLIAMS (Birmingham, S.)

My right hon. friend's question only reached me this morning, and I have not been able to make the necessary inquiries. What I would suggest to the hon. Member is that I should treat the question as being addressed to the Secretary for War at the War Office, in which case a written answer will be sent as early as possible.
