HC Deb 28 May 1906 vol 158 c46
MR. FFRENCH (Wexford, S.)

To ask the Secretary of State for War whether, and on what grounds, it has been decided to abandon the Duncannon rifle range in view of the importance attached, now more than ever, to increased facilities for rifle practice in the Army and Militia.

(Answered by Mr. Secretary Haldane.) The lease for this range expired in January last, and as the range was only a makeshift and very little used in recent years, it was decided to spend the money provided for the rent on the improvement of more suitable ranges.
