§ SIR HENRY FOWLER (Wolverhampton, E.)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War if he will state the amount that has been paid or incurred for stores of all descriptions delivered in South Africa between July 1st, 1902, and March 31st, 1905; the value of such stores as were consumed during that period; the amount received for stores which were sold; the 763 estimated value of the stores which had not been consumed or sold on March 31st, 1905; and what amounts have been included in the accounts of 1903–4 and 1904–5 as appropriations-in-aid.
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR WAR (Mr. ARNOLD-FORSTER,) Belfast, W.
For the purposes of such a Return the information to be found in the accounts at home requires to be supplemented by facts contained in documents in South Africa. I have called for the fullest Report from South Africa, and as soon as it is possible to do so a Return giving all the information available will be laid.
