HC Deb 22 March 1922 vol 152 c487W
Captain GEE

asked the Secretary of State for War whether, in view of the recent explosions at Tipton and Penbury, he will, consider the advisability of having all work connected with the breaking up of ammunition carried out at Woolwich and other Government places?


The ammunition which is being broken down throughout the country was sold a considerable time ago by the Disposal Board and is now the property of private contractors, and is therefore not available for breaking down in Government establishments.
