§ SIR SEYMOUR KING (Hull, Central)
To ask the Secretary of State for India whether he has now received the replies to the inquiries he promised should be made as to the character of the barrack accommodation in Northern China and the health of the officers and troops; whether he will furnish a Return of the various reports made by medical and other inspecting officers as to the accommodation provided for our troops in Northern China; and how much of the money taken in the Army Estimates last year for the improvement of this accommodation at Pekin and Shan-hai-kwan has been expended.
(Answered by Mr. Secretary Arnold-Forster.) I have received a Report on the barrack accommodation in North China. As regards the last part of the Question, about £9,000 of the money voted for Pekin will be spent this year, but the money provided for Shan-hai-kwan will not be spent.
