asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is now in a position to make a statement on the proposed provision of special trains between Hanover and Berlin for spectators of the Grand Military Tattoo in August; and if he will give an estimate of the amount of coal required for the purpose.

Since my right hon. Friend wrote to my hon. Friend about this matter on 14th May he has had the proposed provision of special trains reexamined and it is now intended to run three trains daily in each direction, making a total of 36 trains, with a maximum coal consumption of 360 tons.
