HC Deb 23 May 1892 vol 4 c1532
MR. STURT (Dorset, E.)

I beg to ask the Financial Secretary to the War Office a question of which I have given private notice as to whether, under the exceptional circumstances of the case, he will allow a certain number of tents to be sent from the War Office to Handley for the accommodation of the unfortunates whose houses were destroyed in the fire which occurred there?

MR. HULSE (Salisbury)

I have been in communication with the Mayor of Salisbury, and am informed that in case the War Office will send the tents, every facility will be given for the despatch of the tents from Salisbury to Handley.


I have communicated with the Military Authorities, and under the circumstances the War Department will afford every assistance in their power.
