To ask the right hon. Member for Carshalton and Wallington, representing the House of Commons Commission, on what date the parliamentary rifle range closed, and what the reasons were for that closure.
The range and premises were vacated by the Rifle Club by 2 April 2015. The House of Lords Administration and Works Committee agreed the closure of the rifle range to provide a cost-effective location for fire safety equipment. A minute setting out the reasons for the decision was made publicly available: http://www.parliament.uk/documents/lords-committees/admin-and-works/Minutes20Jan2015.pdf.
