HC Deb 16 November 1916 vol 87 cc1008-9W

asked the Secretary of State for War whether in September last a number of officers and men were sent to join the Third Tigris Corps; whether his attention has been called to the fact that in the case of any officers or men no rations were provided for the river journey, and that consequently individuals had to take their own food; and will he say who is responsible for this lack of prevision?


The matters mentioned in this question have not been brought to my notice. As far as I can judge they belong to a period before the date on which the War Office assumed full control.
