HC Deb 25 February 1914 vol 58 c1753

asked the Secretary of State for War whether it is the intention of the Government to relieve Sir Edward Ward of the payment of the £2,000 damages awarded against him as a representative of the Army Council in the recent libel case; and, if so, under what Vote it will appear?

I am not in a position to make any statement on this matter pending the possibility of an appeal.
