said, he would beg to ask the Secretary of State for War, Whether he will lay upon the Table of the House any Reports or Extracts from Reports made by our Military Attaches at Vienna and Berlin, relating to the quantity of ammunition used by the armies in Bohemia in the campaign of 1866, and especially of the number of rounds per gun' fired at the battle of Königrätz?


in reply, said, that he had made inquiries in the Department that morning with the view of answering the Question of the hon. and gallant Member, and he found that they had no statements of that nature which he could lay on the table with any confidence in their possessing official authority. The subject was, indeed, mentioned by the military correspondents in some of their letters, but he was told there were no documents in the Office which could be presented to the House as affording authoritative information which they could rely upon.
