HC Deb 31 March 1909 vol 3 c339

asked the Secretary of State for War whether any saving would accrue from removing the present garrison from South Africa or from reducing its strength unless the British Army were simultaneously reduced by the number of men forming the said garrison, or by the number of men by which it was reduced?


The reply to my hon. Friend's question is that it probably costs more to maintain the same number of men in South Africa than at home.
