55. Colonel THORNE
asked the Prime Minister if he is aware of the controversy that is now taking place between Mr. Asquith and Lord French in connection with the supply of ammunition of our Armies in the early months of the War; and if he will agree to setting up a small Committee to inquire into the matter and to report in the House as far as possible?
§ Mr. BONAR LAW
The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. I do not think that the course suggested in the last part of the question is desirable.
