HC Deb 25 July 1890 vol 347 c909

I beg to ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if, having regard to the national and educational work of the National Rifle Association, to the fact that the Bisley Ranges have been lent for several weeks to the Aldershot Division for volley firing, and also to the difficulty experienced in raising from the public funds, found in other countries for like purposes by the State, Her Majesty's Government will consider the recommendation of a grant to the Association sufficient to cover the unavoidable cost of its move from Wimbledon to Bisley from the extra money at its disposal from the increased taxation on alcohol?


The answers I have already given with regard to the allocation of this money will make it clear that I cannot undertake to submit to Parliament the proposal suggested by the hon. Member.
