HC Deb 25 March 1941 vol 370 cc408-9
11. Sir Waldron Smithers

asked the Secretary of State for War what rent is being paid per annum by the War Office for the land belonging to the National Rifie Association at Bisley; and the approximate acreage?

Captain Margesson

The required information is being obtained from the Command, and I will communicate with ray hon. Friend as soon as it is received.

Sir W. Smithers

If the information reveals a state of things which justifies him in doing so, will my right hon. and gallant Friend put it before the High Court, so that a Judge may see whether there is a prima facie case of waste and extravagance?

Captain Margesson

I think I had better get the information first.
