Sulphate of potash

Don't they add MOP to Fibrophos to bring it up to desired levels?
Yes they do http://www.fibrophos.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/QCH_Fibrophos_Fertiliser_MSDS.pdf

The products are prepared by blending ashes produced from the incineration of poultry manure and associated bedding together with a proportion of timber and other biomass. Up to 15% of potassium chloride (muriate of potash) and/or Triple Super Phosphate and/or Agricultural Grade Chalk (50%NV) may be added to adjust the analysis and up to 15% unreacted lime may remain in certain products in the range.

I think it's a misrepresentation of the truth to associate chloride with chlorine in the sense that their effect is related. But i did only get a C in gcse chemistry. What do you say Philip?
It all depends what your aim is, I would like to use it

I know at moment the price differential between MOP and SOP makes its use cost prohibitive

I am using sulphate of ammonia and muriate of potash, not the same thing but that's farming

I read that during World War 2 they used MOP to compact runways
Also potassium chloride is what used as lethal injection in US
I like my bugs and if I add any at drilling I'd prefer not to execute them
