HC Deb 05 July 1904 vol 137 c634

To ask the Secretary of State for War whether he has yet received any answer to his inquiry as to the sale of Government stores in South Africa by Colonel Morgan, of the Army Service Corps.

(Answered by Mr. Secretary Arnold Forster.)A report on this subject has just been received from the General Officer Commanding in South Africa, but, in view of the fact that Colonel Morgan has instituted proceedings against the London newspaper which commented on the remarks made by the Chief Justice of the Transvaal in connection with this matter, no action will be taken by the War Office until the case is decided in Court.
