§ MR. FREEMAN-THOMAS (Hastings)
To ask the Secretary of State for War if he is aware that ammunition, dated 1897, is being issued for rifle practice to certain volunteer regiments; and, in view of the character of this ammunition, which makes accurate shooting impossible, will he take stops to insure that such ammunition is not issued in future.
(Answered by the Secretary of State for war.) No complaint has been received of any rifle ammunition. A complaint was received of some Morris tube ammunition, and this is being investigated.
