asked the Secretary of State for War if he is aware of the considerable expense incurred by officers and their families who are moved from one station to another in the storage of their furniture while occupying furnished accommodation in a new station because of inability to get unfurnished accommodation; and if he will take the necessary steps to reimburse such cost as is allowed in the Civil Service.
