§ 9. Mr. WALLACE
asked the Secretary of State for War what were the total quantities of khaki cloth, flannel, hosiery, and blankets held by the War Office at home and abroad, and the number of finished garments in cloth and flannel, including any such cloth and flannel invoiced by the War Office to makers-up; what quantities of cloth and garments were required as reserves and upon what basis such reserves were estimated; and what quantities under the above categories had been declared surplus to requirements by the War Office since the Armistice?
§ The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the WAR OFFICE (Mr. Forster)
The figures asked for in the question cover so wide a field that I regret I am not at the moment in a position to give my hon. Friend a detailed statement. If he will be kind enough to postpone the question till this day week, I will do my best to give him the information.
