HC Deb 09 March 1925 vol 181 cc946-7W

Budget for the British Army in India arises from sea transport of troops and material, and from expenditure other than the pay and maintenance of the troops while on Indian soil?


I regret that the figures for which the hon. and gallant Member asks are not available for the British Army it India as distinct from the Indian Army, since under many important heads, such for instance as the Quartermaster General's Branch, the accounts for the two Services cannot be separated. For the Army in India as a whole, the following are approximate percentages of the total annual charge: Sea transport of troops, 1 per cent.; cost of imported stores, 5 per cent.; freight of stores, 1–6th per cent.; remaining home charges, 6 per cent.
