HC Deb 02 December 1926 vol 200 c1367
47. Mr. VIANT

asked the Prime Minister if there is any committee or body in this country charged with the duty of advising on the various aspects of chemical warfare; if so, who are the members of this body; and are any of them in any way connected with the chemical industry?

Captain KING

I have been asked to reply. The Chemical Warfare Committee advises on these matters. Its composition is given on page 929 of the current Monthly Army List. Four out of 25 regular members of the Committee, and 12 out of over 90 associate members, are connected with the chemical industry.


Is the matter of chemical warfare being brought before the League of Nations?

Captain KING

I am afraid that that is not a proper question for me to answer.
