§ MR. CHANNING (Northamptonshire, E.)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War if he can say why the Paper entitled South African Republics (Military Notes), which was presented by Command, and laid upon the Table on 12th December, 1900, has not been issued to Members; and when it will be issued.
§ MR. BRODRICK
It was considered that the wants of Members would be sufficiently met by supplying copies to the library. There are not enough of the stock remaining in England to give a full supply to the House, and it was thought to be a waste of money to reprint the work.
§ MR. CHANNING
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that there is a considerable demand for this Paper?
§ MR. TENNANT (Berwickshire)
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that there are twenty copies for 670 Members?
§ MR. STEVENSON (Suffolk, Eye)
Seeing that intimation was given that the copies might be taken away, is the right hon. Gentleman aware that there are only one or two left?
