HC Deb 07 February 1913 vol 48 c228W

asked the Secretary of State for War whether the German cable used at Tidworth and Bulford Camps is being insulated with re-manufactured rubber or Partly so?

Colonel SEELY

It is understood that a certain amount of re-manufactured rubber is used in the outside vulcanised covering of the cable, which is mainly for mechanical protection for the pure rubber inner covering. The rubber used was subjected to mechanical tests, and found quite satisfactory.
