HC Deb 10 June 1890 vol 345 c512
MR. A. THOMAS (Glamorgan, E.)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether complaints have reached him that the ammunition served out to the Volunteers is so bad and defective that the majority of those who hitherto earned the highest Capitation Grant fail to do so at present in consequence of the inferior quality of the ammunition?

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

No, Sir; complaints of the kind stated in the question have not reached the War Office.
