HC Deb 11 June 1959 vol 606 cc119-20W
Mr. Robert Cooke

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs what notice he has received from Bristol Corporation of intention to demolish the Mylne Stables at King's Weston, which is a building scheduled as being of architectural interest.

(2) what is being done with the ammunition that is now in storage and would have been used for the redundant rifles now being replaced; and whether he will make it available, at an appropriate price, to British riflemen both in this country and in parts of the Commonwealth.

Mr. Ward

Some surplus rifles are being bought by Commonwealth Governments. Others are being offered to registered rifle dealers. The National Rifle Association has also been given the chance of buying them but I doubt whether the types now surplus will be of interest to amateur riflemen.

We have no surplus ammunition.

Forward to
