I beg to ask the Secretary of State of War, whether he will lay upon the Table, for circulation among the Members of the House, a Copy of the regulations in force on the 30th September, 1899, defining the duties assigned to each of the following, viz.: the Intelligence Branch of the War Office, the Remount Department of the War Office, and to our Military Attachés at Foreign Courts.


As regards the Intelligence Branch and the Remount Department, my hon. and gallant friend will find the information he requires in two Parliamentary Papers presented in 1899, viz.: Orders in Council defining the duties of the Principal Officers charged with the Administration of the Army, printed 17th March, 1899, and Memorandum showing the duties of the Principal Officers and Departments of the War Office, and details of Office Procedure under Order in Council of 7th March, 1899, numbered C.9230. As regards the Military Attachés, they take their instructions from the Foreign Office.
