HC Deb 15 March 1922 vol 151 cc2221-2W

asked the Home Secretary if he will cause inquiries to be made into the conditions of the sale of Government ammunition to contractors; whether the premises at Tipton which were recently destroyed, were suitable for this work; and whether, in view of the danger arising from work of this character, he will secure more stringent conditions of sale?


I would refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave yesterday to the hon. Member for West Bromwich (Mr. F. Roberts). As regards the suitability of the premises at Tipton, I am unable to say anything further on that, in view of the inquiry announced yesterday by my right hon. Friend the Home Secretary.
