§ Sir John Farr
asked the Secretary of State for Defence if civilian use of Ash and Pirbright ranges for club purposes can now be arranged.
§ Mr. Lee
Civilian clubs are able to fire on some of the ranges at Pirbright, but restrictions on the use of some of the ranges within the Ash and Pirbright complexes leave little spare capacity once the military requirements have been met. We are, however, considering whether additional facilities could be made available for civilian use at Ash and Pirbright.
