§ Mr. BALDWIN (Joint Financial Secretary to the Treasury)
I hope to circulate shortly a statement showing the staff of each Government Department on 1st August, 1914, 11th November, 1918, and 31st March, 1919, respectively; under arrangements now instituted for monthly returns of the staff of Government Departments; figures showing the staff at the beginning of July will become available before long. I hope that in the circumstances the hon. Member will not press for figures for the particular dates in his question.
§ Mr. BALDWIN
That is one of the reasons that induced me to have this monthly collection of figures got out.
§ Sir C. KINLOCH-COOKE
Can the hon. Gentleman let us have the number of houses that have been commandeered since the Armistice?
