HC Deb 09 March 1932 vol 262 c1799

asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office what is the service to be performed by the new propellant factory at Woolwich?

Lieut.-Colonel Sir A. LAMBERT WARD (Lord of the Treasury)

I have been asked to reply. This building is being erected to replace the existing accommodation used for experimental work in connection with propellants at the Research Department. The object of the replacement is to secure greater safety.
