§ MR. CONYBEARE
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether he has had under his consideration the claims of Mr. Jobson, of Newcastle, for recognition of his invention of a shell, for which he alleges that Lord Armstrong received the payment due to himself; and what is his decision in the matter?
§ MR. E. STANHOPE
I am not aware of any claim from Mr. Jobson on account of a shell. As regards his alleged invention of a fuse, I can only refer to my reply of the 28th April last.
