HC Deb 28 July 1898 vol 63 c305
MR. MONK (Gloucester)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War whether he can inform the House in what manner the sum of £500,000 allotted for rifle ranges under the Military Works Act, 1897, has been allocated, specifying the localities in which the ranges are situated, and the amount of grant in each case?


In the Act of 1897 the provision for ranges is not separated from that for lands for manœuvring and mobilisation. It is not practicable, in answer to a Question, to give in detail the distribution of the expenditure on ranges; but it is being spread as widely as possible.
