§ 87. Sir A. MARKHAM
asked the Under-Secretary for War whether he has any official information to the effect that Messrs. Krupp, of Essen, supplied to certain British armament firms the full detailed drawings of the shrapnel fuses now being used by the British Army in France?
§ The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the WAR OFFICE (Mr. Forster)
The drawings of a fuse from which one of the fuses used by our Army in France may be said to have been evolved were obtained through an English firm from Messrs. Krupp's, but the full drawings of the fuse as used in the British service were not obtained from Messrs. Krupp's.
