HC Deb 03 May 1904 vol 134 cc243-4

To ask the Secretary of State for War whether he can say approximately when the orders will be given for the new batteries to be made by private manufacturers for the Army in India.

(Answered by Mr. Secretary Arnold-Forster.) I am not yet in a position to state definitely when the new orders for the new batteries will be given, but every effort is being made to facilitate progress in this direction.
