§ Mr. MacKenzie
asked the Secretary of State for Defence if he has completed his study of the use of Army or reserve forces rifle ranges in or near to densely populated areas; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Freeman
We have no study specifically addressing the use of Army or reserve forces rifle ranges in or near to densely populated areas. However, we continue to place the greatest importance on maintaining the safety of our ranges and, within the context of our essential military training requirements, to pay close attention to relations with the general public.
