To ask the Secretary of State for War whether sanction will be given by the War Office to trials, free of all cost, of the Ivel motor, shielded with Cammell's bullet-proof steel for protecting medical officers and men giving first aid, affording electric light without glass to field hospital camps, and also working a new portable ice-making machine, for testing and report in the field, under the direction of the medical department at Aldershot.

(Answered by Mr. Secretary Arnold Forster.) The Ivel motor ambulances with bullet-proof armour, electric light apparatus, and gear for portable ice machine has been under consideration and has been declined as unsuited to service requirements. Further trials are not therefore contemplated.
