HC Deb 21 October 1915 vol 74 c1996

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War if his attention has been called to the offer of a number of greatcoats; if the sale has yet taken place; if he will consider the advisability of disposing of the coats to our troops in the Balkans or to our 25,000 prisoners in Germany; and, if the sale has taken place, what price was realised for them?


I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer which I gave on this subject a week ago to the hon. Member for Plymouth. If my hon. Friend has in mind some other offer of greatcoats for sale and would furnish me with more particulars, I will have the matter inquired into.
