§ GENERAL RUSSELL () Cheltenham
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War whether our heavy guns now in South Africa have been provided with the disappearing mountings which are stated to have been used with so much effect by the Boers during General Buller's last advance across the Tugela; and, if not, whether similar mountings, will be dispatched from this country without delay.
§ * MR. WYNDHAM
No, Sir. It is considered that the disadvantages attendant on the use in the field of this class of mounting more than counterbalance its. advantages.
