HC Deb 12 July 1956 vol 556 cc41-2W
Sir A. Bossom

asked the Secretary to the Treasury if he will take steps to permit members of recognised rifle clubs to carry a rifle for legitimate purposes either to and from a gunsmith in connection with purchase or repair, or to and from a range in connection with an organised shoot, even though this may not be the range mentioned on the certificate.

Mr. H. Brooke

The certificate in question exempts members of recognised rifle clubs from gun licence duty in respect of rifles used for musketry practice at, and carried to and from, ranges approved by competent military authority. It might present difficulty to extend the terms of the exemption, and I should hope that it would be possible to arrange for rifles to be collected and delivered by the gunsmith.
