HC Deb 04 May 1908 vol 187 c1646

On behalf of the hon. Member for the Rye Division of Sussex, I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether the Territorial Artillery are expected to be able to lay out lines of fire with the converted 15-pounder gun; and, if so, when the necessary directors, field plotters, dial sights, etc., will be provided.


The reply to the first part of the Question is in the affirmative. As regards the rest of the Question it is not practicable at present to give any definite date when it will be possible to issue the equipment mentioned.

MR. CARLILE (Hertfordshire, St. Albans)

asked if it were not the fact that the 15-pounders were found to be out of range—


Notice should have been given of that Question.
