HC Deb 01 March 1949 vol 462 cc186-7
67. Major Legge-Bourke

asked the Minister of Supply what steps he is taking to ease the difficulties of small bore rifle clubs in Britain in obtaining high grade ammunition.

The Joint Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Supply (Mr. Jack Jones)

I would refer the hon. and gallant Member to the reply given yesterday to the hon. Member for Southern Dorset (Viscount Hinchingbrooke).

Mr. C. S. Taylor

Would the hon. Gentleman be prepared to receive a deputation from the National Association of Rifle Clubs to explain the very serious position?

Mr. Jones

If the hon. Member would put that to us in writing we should consider that aspect of the matter.
