HC Deb 17 March 1893 vol 10 c417

6. £100, Army (Ordnance Factories)

MR. BRODRICK (Surrey, Guildford)

said he doubted whether it would be an economical arrangement to keep up all these establishments if a small number of rifles was to be made. It might prove to be a loss to the country.

MR. HANBURY (Preston)

said he had intended to raise a discussion, but he recognised that the Secretary for War was entitled to get some of his Votes to-day, and if he could get a reasonable undertaking from the right hon. Gentleman that he would give him a fairly early opportunity—say June—he would not say anything to-day.


I am much obliged to my hon. Friend for making that proposal, and I undertake to say that in the month of June he shall have the opportunity he desires.

Vote agreed to.
