HC Deb 11 April 1910 vol 16 c891

asked the right hon. Gentleman, whether the plant and the skilled artisans for making projectiles at Woolwich Arsenal are now being worked to the full extent of their possible output; and, if so, what provision exists for meeting the increased need of such projectiles in the event of war?


Full employment is found for the men now in the shops where projectiles are manufactured, but the plant is not worked to its full capacity. In case of increased need of projectiles the plant would be worked to its full capacity and the trade would be employed. Such reserve means of manufacture are considered ample to meet all requirements.
