§ MR. CARLILE
To ask the Secretary of State for War how many rounds will be fired per battery of the new converted 15-pounder gun to obtain efficiency; and what percentage of hits makes a first, or second, or third-class marksman in the Territorial Artillery.
(Answered by Mr. Secretary Haldane.) As regards the first part of the Question the allowance of ammunition per battery is 200 rounds annually, but no classification standard has yet been considered for the Territorial Artillery. As regards the second part of the Question, there is no such thing as a first, second, or third-class marksman in the artillery.
