HC Deb 17 April 1913 vol 51 c2142W

asked the Secretary for War whether he is aware that the Royal North Devon Hussars, whose headquarters are at Barnstaple, have their miniature rifle range at the Conservative Club in that town; that the Devon Territorial Association pay rent to the Conservative Asoociation for the use of the range; and that in consequence every member of the regiment who desires to shoot has to go to a political club to do so; whether he is aware that the Royal North Devon Hussars have premises in Barnstaple where a range could conveniently be made; and, if so, whether he proposes to take any action in the matter?

Colonel SEELY

There is no information concerning these matters at the War Office. The Devon Association, however, have proposed a scheme for new headquarters for Yeomanry and Infantry at Barnstaple and at such headquarters a miniature range would as a matter of course be provided.
