HC Deb 09 March 1916 vol 80 c1717

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether the dummy rifles used last year by the War Office can now be given or lent to the National Training Corps, so that working men who are sacrificing much time in carrying out the necessary drills efficiently may be saved the expense of buying them?


I am not quite sure to what rifles my hon. Friend may be referring, but I may say that all rifles of the D.P. or Drill Pattern type are in use by troops under training.
