HC Deb 26 April 1917 vol 92 c2593W
Major HUNT

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will take steps, by legislation or otherwise, to relieve shooting tenants from the obligation to pay the rent for their shootings if unable to purchase cartridges?


I would refer the hon. and gallant Gentleman to -the reply given on 14th March by the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Munitions to the hon. and gallant Gentleman the Member for East Antrim. In view of the fact that there are considerable stock's of sporting ammunition in the country, the hon. Member's suggestion is not one which can at present be entertained.
