I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the reply which I gave on the same subject on 8th March to my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for East Fife. As I then stated, I cannot deal with the subject within the limits of a Parliamentary Answer, but I propose to do so in the course of my statement on Army Estimates to-morrow.
