79. Mr. Dugdale
asked the Secretary of State for War to state the total amount of paint now held surplus at the Suez Canal Base; and how it is proposed to dispose of it.
§ Mr. F. Maclean
There are about 2,000 tons of paint surplus to our needs in the Canal Zone. Some will be needed by the Army elsewhere; some will be bought by the Egyptian Army, and the rest will be available to other buyers.
