HC Deb 20 June 1907 vol 176 cc694-7

Postponed Proceeding on Question, "That this House doth agree with the Committee in the Fourth Resolution' That a sum, not exceeding —2,436,000, be granted to His Majesty, to defray the Charge for Barrack Construction, for Purchases of Land, and for Works, Buildings, and Repairs, at Home and Abroad (including Staff in connection therewith), which will come in course of payment during the year ending on the 31st day of March 1908,"—resumed. —


continuing his remarks, was understood to say that the purpose for which these alterations were being made was artillery training.


asked whether only the item of £13,000 was to be taken for rifle ranges. He had understood that a much larger amount would be taken, and this was a matter that very greatly interested his constituency. He had bad occasion to approach the Secretary of State regarding this subject on several occasions, and had always been given to understand that a substantial sum, sufficient to give material assistance in his own and in other constituencies, would be provided. £13,000 would be of little or no use. Help was wanted in many directions.


said that if the hon. Gentleman would look at the Votes he would find that there were other items in Part II. and in Part III. This amount was taken in Part I.

Question put.
