HC Deb 17 July 1890 vol 347 c65
MR. STANLEY LEIGHTON (Shropshire, Oswestry)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether an agreement was made some years ago between the Imperial Government and the Cape Government that guns should be supplied from England for the fortifications at Cape Town; if he can inform the House how many guns have been provided; and what steps are being taken to carry out the agreement on the part of the Government?

* THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR WAR (Mr. E. STANHOPE,) Lincolnshire, Horncastle

I beg to refer my hon. Friend to my reply of the 3rd instant to the hon. Member for Preston.
