§ MR. FULLER (Wiltshire, Westbury)
To ask the Secretary of State for War whether it is proposed to complete the construction of the Porthcawl rifle range in Glamorganshire; and, if so, whether he can state approximately what the proposed expenditure will be.
(Answered by Mr. Secretary Brodrick.) The site is available for use as a field-firing range without any expense for construction. The estimated cost of constructing a sectional range is £2,500, but as such a range at Porthcawl would be used principally by the auxiliary forces its construction has been in abeyance and will not be further considered until the Royal Commission on the Militia and Volunteers has reported.
