HC Deb 30 October 1919 vol 120 c903W

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he can give any information as to what has been done with the clothes, shoes, and other stores left in Russia subsequent to the British troops evacuating that country; and whether he can give an estimate of the value of goods left behind?


All clothing, stores, and supplies which were surplus to our requirements were, on the embarkation of our troops, handed over to the North Russian Government as part of the evacuation movement. It is not possible at present to give the monetary value of the stores and supplies so transferred, but records have been kept and an estimate is being prepared.
