HC Deb 10 December 1908 vol 198 cc725-6

To ask the Secretary of State for War whether official experiments have been carried out with the Sjögren automatic rifle; if not, whether, in view of the fact that this rifle has been tested with satisfactory results by Continental governments, he will have this weapon included in the tests of automatic rifles; and what automatic rifles have up to the present been officially tested by the War Office.

(Answered by Mr. Secretary Haldane.) I do not think that it would be in the interests of the public service to publish any information in regard to experiments with automatic rifles.
