HC Deb 12 August 1919 vol 119 cc1082-3

asked the Secretary of State for War how many men there are in connection with Signal Companies, stationed in Egypt, and how many of them are expert telegraphists; is he aware that these men are costing the country £10 per day each; and is he aware that there are only seventeen messages a day being sent by these operators?

Captain GUEST

Inquiry is being made, and I will write to my hon. Friend as soon as possible.
