§ MR. HEDDERWICK (Wick Burghs)
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War whether the winter clothing for the troops in the Transvaal contracted for by the War Office is wholly woollen or only partly woollen and partly cotton; and what the price per yard fixed by the War Office was.
* THE FINANCIAL SECRETARY TO THE WAR OFFICE (Mr. J. POWELL-WILLIAMS (Birmingham, S.)
The winter clothing is wholly woollen. No price is fixed by the War Office, but the price is arrived at by competition.
