HC Deb 11 June 1874 vol 219 c1402

asked the Surveyor General of the Ordnance, Why the recommendation of the Ordnance Select Committee, January 29th 1868, and approved of by the Secretary of State for War, for the adoption of the Cunningham training gear for traversing all land service guns of 12 tons and upwards, has been only very partially carried into effect; and, whether any adverse report has been received as to the working of the Cunningham gear; and, if so, if he will lay a Copy of such Report upon the Table of the House?


, in reply, said, it was true that the Committee referred to reported in favour of the invention; but that Report was cancelled in consequence of sundry adverse Reports made by the Committee of 1871. There would be no objection to lay a Copy of the Reports upon the Table of the House if moved for in the regular way.
