HC Deb 01 March 1912 vol 34 c1775W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that the executive of the National Rifle Association have indicated that they will prohibit the use of the Ross rifle at Bisley this year by the representatives of the Canadian forces; and whether, in view of the fact that this rifle is in general use by the Canadian military forces, he will take steps to influence the National Rifle Association to reconsider their decision?

Colonel SEELY

The matter has not been brought to our notice officially. It is not one for the Army Council to decide.
