HC Deb 06 February 1941 vol 368 c1104W
Major Mills

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he will order an immediate issue to Home Guard units for rifle practice of .303 small arms ammunition which has been rejected at the factory as imperfect for use in automatic weapons?

Captain Margesson

.303 small arms ammunition rejected on inspection but suitable for practice purposes is being purchased by the War Office for distribution to the Home Guard through the National Rifle Association, and possible sources of further supplies of such ammunition are being investigated.
