HC Deb 04 May 1871 vol 206 cc150-1

asked the Surveyor General of the Ordnance, If the sealed pattern of the amended Henri-Martini Rifle is open for inspection to Members of this House; and, if so, when and where; and, if Members would be allowed to inspect the interior mechanism of the breech action?


, in reply, said, he would answer the Question in the absence of his right hon. Friend. His gallant Friend would have the weapon ready for inspection at the War Office for hon. Members who were desirous to examine it; and the interior mechanism of the breech action might be inspected at the same time.
