HC Deb 16 April 1914 vol 61 c327
70. Major WHITE

asked the Secretary of State for War if it is intended to reopen the Scholes Hook range, Pembrokeshire, for rifle shooting; and, if so, whether he is aware that danger has been caused to the men working on the Fenton home farm by bullets striking close to them when at their work?


If suitable arrangements can be made for clearing the danger area of labourers and others when firing is to be carried out, this range will be reopened. The fact that bullets have fallen near men at work behind the targets has recently been reported, and the range has just been inspected with a view to steps being taken to improve its safety.
