§ Mr. NEWMAN
asked the Secretary of State for War whether any members of the military council have been, or are about to be, delegated to inspect our fortresses and forces in the Mediterranean 1729W and Egyptian commands in the present year; if so, whether he can state the total cost of such inspection, and on what Vote it appears on the Army Estimates for 1911?
§ Mr. HALDANE
The Hon. Member is apparently alluding to the present visit of the Quartermaster-General and the Master-General of Ordnance to Egypt and to the Mediterranean to settle various questions in connection with the new barracks and buildings in progress and local defences. It is roughly estimated that their journey will in all cost about £350, chargeable to Vote 6.
