§ MR. EDMUND ROBERTSON (Dundee)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War, if he can now state approximately the amount paid or payable under contracts made with persons or firms in South Africa in connection with the war up to the latest date for which such information is procurable.
§ MR. BRODRICK
Yes, but the Return asked for involves information being collected from a very large number of different sources, and in view of the enormous pressure on officers in South Africa, it has been difficult to get it. It will be issued as soon as we get it.
