HC Deb 30 June 1914 vol 64 cc184-5
6. Colonel YATE

asked when funds will become available to commence the issue of one-man range-finders to the Army in India, and when it is anticipated that each battalion, both British and Indian, will be equipped with five of these range-finders, the number authorised for the Expeditionary Force in this country?


I regret that I am unable to give the hon. Member the information he desires. It rests with the Government of India to allocate funds for this and other special military requirements within the amount provided in the Budget for special or schedule expenditure.
