HC Deb 22 July 1935 vol 304 c1480

asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office whether he is aware of the constant shooting practice that is taking place upon the Sabbath day by Territorials at the Treforest, Pontypridd, shooting range; and, in view of the serious interference caused to worshippers at the whole of the chapels and churches in the area, he will issue instructions prohibiting shooting practice upon the Sabbath?

The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the WAR OFFICE (Mr. Douglas Hacking)

I am informed that on two Sundays recently firing took place on this range between the hours of 10 and 1 o'clock. It is usually possible to avoid range-practice at hours when interference may be caused to worshippers, and I am taking up this particular case with that object.
