55. Mr. De la Bère
asked the Secretary of State for War whether he can expedite the supply of rifles suitable for miniature-range work to units of the Territorial Force throughout the country?
§ The Financial Secretary to the War Office (Sir Victor Warrender)
I am not aware that any units of the Territorial Army are short of the authorised scale of equipment of miniature rifles, but if my hon. Friend has any particular case in mind, perhaps he will be good enough to communicate with me, and I will make inquiries.
Mr. De la Bère
Is my hon. Friend aware that many of the miniature rifles at present in use are absolutely worn out 347 and need renewal, and will he give the matter his personal attention?
