HC Deb 22 July 1902 vol 111 cc899-900
MR. PIRIE (Aberdeen, N.)

To ask the Secretary of State for War, having regard to the fact that the Commissioners to investigate locally the proceedings of the remount purchasing commissions in Hungary, Australia, and America were appointed owing to doubts as to the conduct of the officers composing those purchasing commissions, and that direct accusations have been made against those officers, will he, as the reports received from the investigating Commissioners are not to be published at present, take further action in the matter at the earliest opportunity; and, if so, state what such action will be.

(Answered by Mr. Secretary Brodrick.) I am afraid that I have no further information at present to add to that which I have already given the hon. Member on this subject.
