HC Deb 19 June 1873 vol 216 cc1162-3

asked the. Secretary of State for War, If he can give any reason why the claims for compensation for damages in the Autumn Manœuvres last year have not been all settled in Wiltshire; and, if he can state any time before which all such claims shall be paid?


Sir, all the claims except one have been amicably settled, and that one remains at present unsettled, because it is greatly in excess of any other similar claim, and the Compensation officer, not being satisfied as to its amount, is still in correspondence with those by whom it has been preferred.
