HC Deb 30 July 1912 vol 41 c1826
13. Mr. MORTON

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he will consider the advisability of giving a Grant of money to the National Rifle Association towards their annual expenses?

Colonel SEELY

A Grant is made annually of £50 from Army funds towards the prize list for the Bisley meeting, and is allotted to the prize of Secretary of State for War. The association also get the benefit of the services of a considerable number of officers and of non-commissioned officers for range duties, and of a reduced rate for a certain number of rifles and a certain quantity of ammunition; also of the use of military camp equipment.


There is no Grant for the annual expenses?

Colonel SEELY

All this is a help.
