§ MR. AINSWORTH (Argyll)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War what is the total amount spent or proposed to be spent out of funds raised by loan or otherwise for the hutting of troops in South Africa, and whether this sum represents accommodation sufficient for 25,000 men for thirty years.
§ MR. ARNOLD-FORSTER
The total actual and estimated expenditure for permanent accommodation of the troops in South Africa amounts to £3,333,000. Accommodation is being provided for about 21,500 men; the accommodation for the most part is in the form of huts.
