HC Deb 04 August 1896 vol 43 cc1443-4

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War if he has made any arrangement for acquiring ranges within reach so as to train the Staffordshire Militias in their own county, at Whittington Barracks, or in camp on the Government property there?


Every effort is being made to find a suitable range, but the difficulty in the locality referred to is very great, and the fact that the Military Works Bill has not been passed this Session, will necessarily delay the provision of ranges all over the country.[Cheers.]
