HC Deb 18 June 1900 vol 84 cc278-9
*SIR CHARLES DILKE (Gloucestershire, Forest of Dean)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War whether a field-state showing the numbers and composition of the battalion of the 60th Rifles engaged at Farquhar's Farm, near Lombard's Kop, on Monday, the 31st October, is in the possession of the War Office; what number of officers was present with the battalion; and how many of them had been with the battalion for at least two years.


I am unable to give the right hon. Member this information, as the field-states are not sent to the War Office.
