§ MR. SWIFT MACNEILL (Donegal, S.)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War what has been the expense of the printing and publishing of a large illustrated volume of dress regulations issued by the War Office; how many copies of this work have been printed; to whom are the copies to be presented; are they for sale or distributed gratuitously; who is the author of this work; at whose discretion was it compiled; and under what War Office Estimate will it be included.
§ *MR. BROMLEY DAVENPORT
The cost of the book was £642. Seven thousand copies were printed. Copies have been distributed gratuitously to the various units and offices of the Army. Officers and others desiring copies obtain them by purchase. The book was compiled under the direction and in the office of the Quartermaster-General. The cost is borne by Stationery Office Votes.
