§ 31. Mr. RUPERT GWYNNE
asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is vet in a position to state whether the Government will assist miniature rifle clubs in the provision of free ammunition?
§ 33. Mr. BUTCHER
asked the right hon. Gentleman whether, in view of the importance of encouraging the practice of rifle shooting amongst the younger members of the civilian population and of the value of the training in rifle practice given by the rifle clubs of the country, and 1754 in view also of the fact that many men who join or desire to join these rifle clubs are poor and unable to afford to purchase ammunition, he will recommend a Grant, either in money or in ammunition, to, efficient rifle clubs, and thereby enable men who could not otherwise afford it to become proficient in rifle shooting?
§ Colonel SEELY
No decision as to the future position of these clubs in relation to the Army has yet been arrived at.
§ Mr. GWYNNE
When may we expect a decision? It. is over a year since the right hon. Gentleman told us that he was considering it.
