HC Deb 03 July 1905 vol 148 c765
MR. LEIF JONES (Westmoreland, Appleby)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether he can furnish, an account of the surplus animals and articles handed over to the Sales Department in South Africa, as reported by Lord Kitchener in his telegram of June 18th, 1902, and estimated by him to involve six or seven millions of money; and whether he can state the amount realised by the sale of these surplus stores, as distinguished from any other stores then in South Africa but not included by Lord Kitchener in his estimate, or which arrived there after the date of the estimate.


The information required will be included as far as possible in the Return which will be furnished to the House.

In answer to a further Question,


said he did not know if the investigation would enable them to distinguish in all cases between the stores referred to by Lord Kitchener and those provided afterwards, but he hoped it would.
