HC Deb 16 March 1891 vol 351 c1050
CAPTAIN PENTON (Finsbury, Central)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether, in view of the acknowledged deficiency of rifle ranges accessible to Metropolitan Volunteer Regiments, his attention has been called to the fact that a company has been formed with the object of establishing rifle ranges available for Metropolitan and other corps near Staines, and whether the scheme has his sanction or approval?

*THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR WAR (Mr. E. STANHOPE,) Lincolnshire, Horncastle

My attention has been called to the project of forming a company to establish rifle ranges near Staines, and I have expressed strong approval of the objects of the company.
