§ MR. COURTENAY WARNER
I beg to ask the Financial Secretary to the War Office whether he can state what progress has been made in providing new rifle ranges this year, what new rifle ranges have been opened, and how soon the range near Lichfield will be completed.
Over £58,000 has been spent on rifle ranges between 1st January and 31st March, 1901. The figures for the subsequent months are not yet to hand. Five ranges have been completed since 1st January. Thirty-six ranges for the Volunteers have been approved, and are in course of construction. The purchase of land at Lichfield is not yet completed.
