HC Deb 13 July 1899 vol 74 cc688-9

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War whether thirty machine gun carriages were despatched yesterday for shipment at Southampton for South Africa; and whether Mark IV. bullets, which expand on impact, are to be used with these machine guns.


No machine gun carriages were sent to South Africa yesterday. If any machine guns should be sent to South Africa, Mark IV. ammunition would be sent with them.
