§ MR. MAITLAND
asked the Secretary of State for War, For what reasons the 419 experiments on Major Moncrieff's hydro-pneumatic system of gun carriages have not been further proceeded with?
§ LORD EUSTACE CECIL
, in reply, said, the experiments had not been proceeded with, because such gun-carriages were not required for heavy guns. The question as to whether such carriages should be used for siege purposes was now under consideration.
