HC Deb 23 January 1940 vol 356 c354
12. Captain Plugge

asked the Secretary of State for War whether his attention has been called to the increasing number of fatal accidents in camps due to the thoughtless handling of weapons; and whether he proposes to issue any general instructions on the subject?

Mr. Stanley

Instructions regarding the custody of ammunition are contained in The King's Regulations. All fatal accidents are investigated by a Court of Inquiry, and such action is taken as the investigation shows to be necessary. It is not considered at this stage that the issue of further general instructions is required.
