§ Colonel GREIG
asked the Secretary of State for War whether his attention has been drawn to the fact that public notices have been issued in the Press that gun practice will be carried out from Ardhallow battery, on the Clyde, between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. daily from 18th July to 22nd July and 25th July to 29th July, inclusive; and whether, seeing that at that particular period the area over which firing is to take place is more than usually crowded with craft of all description and pleasure steamers and boats, a more convenient time can be arranged for the firing without detriment to the due training of His Majesty's Forces?
§ Mr. HALDANE
The dates for the practice of the Territorial Royal Garrison Artillery Companies at Ardhallow are chosen so as to permit as many men as possible to attend training and gun practice without interfering with their civil occupation. The gun practice from Ardhallow Battery will be arranged so as not to interfere with the Royal Western Yacht Club races on 18th July.
