HC Deb 01 September 1887 vol 320 cc728-9
DR. CLARK (Caithness)

asked the Secretary of State for War, Whether the issue of Morris's tubes and ammunition, sanctioned by General Order, No. 98, of 1886, to regiments of Militia and Volunteers has been stopped or suspended; and, whether, considering the difficulty of earning the Capitation Grant under the new Musketry Regulations, arrangements will be made to issue the tubes and miniature cartridges?


, (who replied), said: The issue of Morris's tubes and ammunition has been deferred for the present in consequence of the numerous other demands on the Vote for Warlike Stores. The question of their issue will be again considered when the general requirements of nest year are ascertained.
