HC Deb 15 March 1923 vol 161 c1808W

asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office if he can give an estimate of the sum which the Army Estimates for 1923–24 would have amounted to if prices and wages had remained at the current rates of the year 1913–14?

Lieut. - Colonel JACKSON:

Without altogether disproportionate expenditure of clerical labour, I cannot add anything to the statement on pages 3 and 4 of the Memorandum of the Secretary of State on Army Estimates. I hope that this will suffice for the hon. Member's purpose.
