    MR. ARTHUR LEE (Hampshire, Fareham)
    I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War, what action he proposes to take with reference to General Manning's official report, that the present service ammunition has little stopping power, and that in a fanatical rush of savages a heavier bullet, or one with greater stopping power, is very requisite.


    THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR WAR (Mr. BRODRICK, Surrey, Guildford)
    Ammunition possessing greater stopping power than the service ammunition has been sent to Somaliland.
