HC Deb 30 June 1904 vol 137 c154
MR. COGHILL (Stoke-upon-Trent)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether he has had any report furnished to him as to the circumstances under which William Hill, of Fenton, a private in the 4th battalion North Staffordshire Militia, was shot at Lichfield last week; and what step he proposes to take to prevent similar accidents occurring in the future, by keeping ball cartridges separate from the dummies supplied for musketry drills.


No report of this matter has reached the War Office. I am inquiring into the matter.
