HC Deb 24 July 1900 vol 86 c1045
MR. YERBURGH (Chester)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War what was the reserve of field and horse artillery in this country when the South African Republic declared war; and how many rounds per gun were sent to South Africa with the Army Corps; and how many rounds per gun wore sent with the batteries which went from India to Durban; and whether, in order to make up the artillery ammunition required for the war, recourse was had to foreign manufacturers.


In introducing a Supplementary Estimate on Friday, I propose to make a statement dealing with reserves of ammunition and other equipment. Perhaps the hon. Member will allow me to defer replying to him till then.
