§ 86. Mr. BARNES
asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office if there is any published list of officers granted gratuities and pensions in respect to wounds received or injuries arising out of the Boer War; if there is no such list will he get one prepared; and will he give the amount of public expenditure in respect to such wounds and injuries for each year since the Boer War settlement?
No such list exists; nor are the figures asked for available. I trust that, in view of the heavy pressure on all sections of the War Office my hon. Friend will be willing to consult with me as to how the purpose he has in view may be met with as little clerical labour as possible.
