Firearms: Training

Volume 461: debated on Tuesday 19 June 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what assessment he has made of the impact on marksmanship of the cancellation of all Division Skill at Arms Meetings until further notice. (143823)

This complies with new army shooting policy; shooting remains a critical skill and the cancellation of Divisional Level meetings will not affect TA operational capability.
