§ 74 and 75. Mr. HOGGE
asked the Under-Secretary of State for War (1) whether General Woollcombe ever informed the chairman of the British Empire Committee at any time to continue the hutting 974 contract with Mr. Devereux; and (2) whether the War Office instructed the colonel commanding the British Empire Royal Fusiliers (City of London) to continue the food contract with Mr. Devereux.
§ Mr. TENNANT
These matters are under consideration, and until they have been investigated I can make no statement. The inquiry may take some time.
