§ Mr. HOHLER
asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office how many pairs of boots, how much flannel, leather, crockery, and glass, and how many brushes and brooms are held by his Department; and will he give particulars of the amounts handed over to the Disposal Board from the 1st April last?
§ Mr. FORSTER
The various articles included under the heading of leather, crockery, and glass, embracing some 1,500 items, are stored all over the country; it would entail a very considerable amount of correspondence and clerical labour to obtain the information desired, and I hope my hon. and learned Friend will1922W not press for it. Approximately, 1,500,000 pairs of boots are in stock. No new boots have been handed over for disposal.
