HC Deb 12 July 1905 vol 149 cc390-1

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War what is the allowance of ball ammunition per man per annum in the Volunteer force for practice and competitions, apart from the allowance made for the annual course of musketry.


The State makes an annual grant to every infantry Volunteer of ninety rounds. The musketry regulations permit of ten rounds of this ammunition being expended in practice and competition. Further, it is a custom of Volunteer corps to utilise for matches the ammunition in hand on completion of the regulation and repetition practices.
