§ Mr. NEWMAN
asked how many general officers are at present attached to the Mediterranean and Egyptian commands, the total amount of the salaries attaching to their appointments, and the number of British troops of all arms at present serving in the Mediterranean?
§ Mr. HALDANE
There are seven general officers in these commands, including the Inspector-General of the Overseas Forces, and two are Governors of Colonies. Also two of them are artillery officers who are in command of that arm only, and one is an infantry brigadier. These draw in all £13,463 from army funds. The establishment of the troops amount to 17,559.
