§ MR. BROOKFIELD (Sussex, Rye)
asked the Secretary of State for War, Whether, in view of the fact that Van 532 and Wheel Taxes are about to come into force, he will consider the justice and expediency of causing the military toll gates in the neighbourhood of Rye and elsewhere to be removed?
§ THE FINANCIAL SECRETARY, WAR DEPARTMENT (Mr. BRODRICK) (Surrey, Guildford)
(who replied) said: The tolls received for the military road are used in aid of the maintenance of the road. If the County Board will undertake to maintain the road there will be no objection to the abolition of the tolls.
