HC Deb 09 December 1920 vol 135 cc2409-10
57. Lieut.-Colonel ARCHER-SHEE

asked the Prime Minister what is the total number of guns, rifles, and aeroplanes surrendered or destroyed by the Germans under Allied supervision since the Armistice, excluding naval material; and what percentage of the total numbers of each of the above categories of surrendered or destroyed arms bear to the total number in possession of the German armies at the time of the Armistice?


I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the reply given on Monday to a similar question by my right hon. Friend the Leader of the House. With regard to the second part, the percentage in the case of aeronautical material represents 92 per cent. of the number in possession of Germany at the time of the Armistice, but it is not possible to form an exact estimate of the percentage in regard to guns and rifles.
