§ MR. HARMSWORTH (Caithness-shire)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Admiralty if he is aware of any instances in the Navy of ammunition intended for practice firing being thrown overboard.
§ THE SECRETARY To THE ADMIRALTY (Mr. ARNOLD-FORSTER, Belfast, W.)
I have been unable to trace any instances of the practice referred to, at any rate in the last twenty years. If 270 such instances have occurred they are unknown to the Admiralty, but if the hon. Member will call my attention to any specific case it will be investigated.
