HC Deb 01 May 1900 vol 82 c416
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.


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.
