HC Deb 04 December 1945 vol 416 c2277W
Mr. Renton

asked the Secretary of State for War the price at which small arms ammunition is sold to bona fide rifle clubs.

Mr. Lawson

A price representing its cost to the State but, in view of existing surpluses, the question of a lower price for surplus ammunition, serviceable but not in 100 per cent. condition, is under consideration with the Ministry of Supply and Aircraft Production. This arrangement will be restricted to the National Rifle Association and affiliated bodies.
