MR. MOCRAE (Edinburgh, E.)
To ask the Secretary of State for War under which paragraph of the Volunteer Regulations a Volunteer is asked or required to 543 qualify as a first-class shot; and if he can state the standard of musketry efficiency necessary to qualify under paragraph 4, Army Council Circular, of 20th June, 1905.
(Answered by Mr. Secretary Arnold-Forster.) The regulations laying down the standard of efficiency for first-class shots of Volunteers will be found in the Provisional Musketry Regulations published in 1903; this standard is 100 points. It must be remembered that Volunteer corps can still fire under the old provisions contained in the Volunteer Regulations of 1901.
