HC Deb 05 March 1909 vol 1 c1795W

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty what expenditure has been incurred by the Board owing to the recent operations on the Somali coast.


It is not practicable to give an Estimate of the naval expenditure incurred on account of operations on the Somali coast, inasmuch as such service is incidental to the general purposes for which His Majesty's ships are maintained on the East Indies Station, as in other parts of the world.
