§ 3. Mr. Chetwynd
asked the Secretary of State for War to what extent the Vickers machine gun, with which the Army is still equipped, will be modified to take .300 ammunition.
§ Mr. Soames
The Vickers gun will not be modified. It will be replaced in due course by a sustained fire machine gun now under trial. This gun will fire the standard N.A.T.O. round.
