§ MAJOR RASCH (Essex, S.E.)
asked the Secretary of State for War, If it is the fact that the War Department have obtained powers to buoy off a large portion of the eastward sea approach to Harwich Harbour for a rifle range?
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE (Mr. E. STANHOPE) (Lincolnshire, Horncastle)
A portion of the eastward sea approach to Harwich Harbour falls within the sea area within which vessels are not allowed to fish or needlessly anchor while firing is going on at the Land guard rifle range, though they may freely cross it on their way to or from Harwich Harbour. This sea area is defined by existing buoys and by beacons on shore.
