§ MR. LABOUCHERE
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War what are the rules in regard to the admission of tradesmen to the forts and barracks at Plymouth; and whether any respectable 1352 tradesman of the town will be allowed a pass on application?
§ MR. E. STANHOPE
The general principle of recent rules is to limit as far as possible the admission of persons to military works and buildings, except upon business. Provision is made for a pass for tradesmen and others who may be admitted to the residential portion of any fort or barrack, at the discretion of the General Officer commanding the district.
