§ MR. JOHN ELLIS (Nottinghamshire, Rushcliffe)
I beg to ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer what the total cost of the war in South Africa was to the National Exchequer up to 31st March.
§ MR. HANBURY
My right hon. friend has asked me to reply to this question. The latest figures which are-yet available of the war expenditure up to the 31st March are given on page 6 of the House of Commons Paper, No. 124,. namely, about 23¼ millions.
