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.
