23. Dr. MURRAY
asked the Secretary of State for War if he can state what is the number of troops at present employed in Ireland; and what is their weekly cost?
§ Mr. CHURCHILL
The number of troops at present employed in Ireland is 55,000, and their weekly cost is £210,000.
§ Sir M. DOCKRELL
Is not Ireland a cheap country in which to keep troops, and have we not got to keep them somewhere?
