§ Mr. BOWLES
asked the First Lord of the Admirality, with reference to his statement showing the effect of the proposed re-appropriation of cash provision under Vote 8, whether he will state the total amount by which it is proposed to decrease the value of the stock of naval stores in the course of this reappropriation?
§ Mr. McKENNA
I am not sure that I quite understand what is the particular point of the question the hon. Member puts to me, but I assume that he wishes to know the total value of stores consumed without replacement over a period of four years. It amounts, as far as Vote 8 is concerned, to £1,637,000.
