I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether he can furnish the House with such information as the War Office possesses with regard to the military system of Switzer land as is not of a confidential character
The handbook of the Swiss Army published by the Intelligence Division of the War Office will give my hon. friend all the information he requires. The book can be obtained through any bookseller, and the price is sixpence.
In what year was the book published?
I cannot say, but I will show my hon. friend a copy.
Will the War Office issue it in a cheaper form, so that the general public may be able to study it?
No, Sir, I cannot undertake to do anything of the kind.
