HC Deb 04 March 1908 vol 185 c661
MR. COURTHOPE (Sussex, Rye)

To ask the Secretary of State for War whether, in order to promote efficiency and keenness among civilian members of rifle clubs, he will make a grant of .303 service ammunition to rifle clubs at the rate of 100 rounds for each skilled shot certificate issued by the National Rifle Association to members of such clubs who have attained a high standard of skill with the service rifle on open ranges.

(Answered by Mr. Secretary Haldane.) There are no funds at my disposal at present to enable me to make the grant suggested in the Question. It is just possible we may be able to do something for them by supplying a certain amount of ammunition at reduced rates.
