HC Deb 28 July 1906 vol 162 c209

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether he will take the opportunity presented by the saving to be effected on the Army Estimates to create a reserve of guns and ammunition which cannot be created in time of war, and which are maintained in this country in a condition quite below the standard of a first-class Power.


The reserves of guns and ammunition which are already available or in course of supply are considered adequate.
