HC Deb 10 August 1916 vol 85 c1257W

asked the Minister of Munitions if his attention has been drawn to the fact that at the Sheffield Munitions Court, early in July, Sir William Clegg stated that one of his gardeners, who had lived in the village all his life and who had never seen a shell, went straight away and was appointed a shell inspector; and will he say whether any test was made of this man's fitness for the appointment?


I would refer the hon. Member to the reply which I gave to a similar question asked by the hon. Member for Blackburn on the 2nd instant.
