HC Deb 24 March 1892 vol 2 cc1671-2

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that the warders and other officers of the Chatham Prison have been called upon to move with their families and furniture into what are termed the old quarters, and that officers of Volunteers are to be quartered with the families of the said warders and officers during the Easter Review; whether some arrangement can be made to obviate this inconvenience; and whether, in view of the fact that the warders and officers of the prison, who are shortly to be removed to other establishments, have in some cases a considerable excess of furniture over one ton weight, such excess will be moved at the public expense, instead of limiting the "free" weight to one ton?


The Easter Review Volunteers will occupy certain vacant quarters in Chatham Prison, but they will not be quartered on the families of prison officials. The last part of the question should be addressed to the Home Department.


Will the Home Secretary answer the latter part of the question?


I have not seen the question until this moment, and am not in a position to give the hon. Member an answer.
