HC Deb 23 July 1913 vol 55 c2027

asked the Secretary of State for War whether it is the intention of the Government to use the £80,000, made by the South African Garrison Institute during the Boer War, for the purpose of establishing Army co-operative trading in military centres in this country; and, if so, whether he has fully considered the probable effect on local tradesmen?

The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for WAR (Mr. Tennant)

I would refer the hon. Gentleman to the reply given to a question on this subject put by my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Southampton on Monday last, the 21st instant.
