HC Deb 30 April 1936 vol 311 cc1115-6W

asked the Secretary of State for War whether any experiments have been, or are being, made in the use of poison gases; if any quantity is being prepared and stored; and if it is intended to use the same in the event of war 7?


Experiments are made with poisonous gases in order to devise measures of protection against them, and for this purpose small quantities are prepared and stored. As regards the last part of the question, I would refer the hon. Member to the Geneva Gas Protocol of 1925.
