§ Mr. ARCHDALE
asked the Secretary of State for War what is the cost of making concrete clearance pits, with the necessary drainage, per target in rifle ranges fitted with Hythe pattern frames; and what is the total difference in the cost of range equipment, including clearance pits, between the fitting up of older types and targets and those of the Reid system?
§ Mr. CHURCHILL
It is impossible to give with any accuracy the cost of making concrete clearance pits, with the necessary drainage, as it depends upon the nature of the site of the gallery, which varies in every case. The difference in the cost, including fixing but excluding clearance pits, between Hythe frames and Reid wooden frames is £7 6s. 6d.
