§ CAPTAIN NORTON
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War if he can state whether the guns ordered by the War Office on March 5th, 1904, are to be paid for on the Army Estimates; and, if not, how is the payment to be made.
§ *MR. ARNOLD-FORSTER
The date upon which the orders for the guns were given was May 5th, 1904, when orders were placed with the Ordnance Factories for twenty 13-pounder guns for India. For these guns the Indian Government will pay.
