HC Deb 11 March 1880 vol 251 c812

asked the Secretary of State for War, Whether, in consideration of the great distance of Shoeburyness as an Artillery Volunteer Camp and place of competition for heavy ordnance, the Government propose to form a camp of instruction in Scotland or north of England?


in reply, said, that inquiries had been made as to the establishment of a camp of instruction in the North, and the authorities had reported on the suitability of a particular place, which he need not specify, but which was, unfortunately, not regarded as convenient for the purposes of the Volunteer Force. The question required, and was receiving, much consideration.
