HC Deb 08 June 1915 vol 72 cc159-60

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that, for the purposes of training, the King's Lynn detachment of the Volunteer Training Corps have ordered a small number of Martini rifles from Messrs. Agnew and Sons; that several applications have been made to the War Office for the necessary permit for their delivery; that such permit is still withheld; and will he state when it is likely to be granted?


The answer to the first three parts of the question is in the affirmative. As regards the last part, I can only say that the application is under consideration. The hon. Member will see that it forms part of a large question.
