§ Mrs. Curtis-Thomas
To ask the Secretary of State for Defence (1) what representations he has received from the Territorial Auxiliary and Volunteer Reserve Association in Hightown regarding the purchase of access land; 
(2) if he will make a statement on the land owned and managed by the Territorial, Auxiliary and Volunteer Reserve Association in Hightown (Crosby), Merseyside. 
§ Mr. Spellar
The Territorial Auxiliary and Volunteer Reserve's (TAVRA) rifle range at Altcar is accessed via a private road that passes through land that was sold in July 1998 to two parties. It has not been possible to reach an agreement to renew the right of way to the rifle range with one of the landowners. My Department is therefore considering options to resolve this difficulty. In the meantime, the rifle range is being accessed through a secondary entrance as a temporary measure.
