§ MR. LAMBERT (Devonshire, South Molton)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War, seeing that as the officers of the Comptroller-General were unable to check the revised figures in respect of Head II., Barracks, and Head III., Rifle Ranges, under the Military Works Acts, that official called for a statement showing how such amounts had been arrived at, but awaits a reply from the War Office, when will the reply of the War Office be sent to the Comptroller-General.
§ * THE FINANCIAL SECRETARY TO THE WAR OFFICE (Mr. BROMLEY DAVENPORT,) Cheshire, Macclesfield
The statement referred to was asked for by the Comptroller and Auditor-General on 21st January and was furnished to him on the 7th February.
§ MR. LAMBERT
But the Comptroller and Auditor-General states in his Report that he still awaits a reply!
