§ MR. SEYMOUR ORMSBY-GORE (Lincolnshire, Gainsborough)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War if he will state what are the numbers of gun carriages, ammunition and transport wagons, in South Africa; and how many of them are in such a condition of repair as to render them available for immediate service.
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR WAR (Mr. ARNOLD-FORSTER,) Belfast, W.
It is not usual or expedient to give detailed information of the nature alluded to in the Question. I can, however, assure the House that all necessary steps have been taken to make the equipments mentioned available for immediate service.
