§ 14. Mr. MANDER
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department why permission has been granted by him for the use of rifles by cadets in camp this summer; and whether this has the approval of the War Office?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. Short)
The hon. Member appears to be under some misapprehension. Possibly he has in mind the facilities allowed by-Section 1 (8) (e) of the Firearms Act, 1920, to Cadet Corps approved under that provision. The withdrawal of War Office recognition of Cadet Corps was not intended to preclude them from being granted such facilities in the future, under the Section referred to, as are enjoyed by other similar civilian organisations.
§ Mr. C. WILLIAMS
Are not rifles allowed to be used in the Portuguese Army?
