The cost of the British Army in Egypt and the Sudan for 1913–14 was £634,127 as shown on page 89 of the Army Appropriation Account for that year. The estimated cost for 1925–26 is £3,050,000. There were no Air Forces in Egypt and the Sudan in 1913–14. The estimated cost of such forces for 1925–26 is £1,170,000.
Captain ARTHUR EVANS
Can the right hon. Gentleman give us the combatant strength of our Army of Occupation?
It would be more satisfactory if the hon. and gallant Member would put down a question addressed to the Secretary of State for War.
