§ MR. M'CARTAN (Down, S.)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether an arrangement was made some time ago with Lord Massereene for securing his deer park, or a portion of it near the town of Antrim, for a shooting range; whether he can state on what terms the land was taken; and whether the agreement has yet been perfected; and, if not, will he state the cause of the delay?
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR WAR (Mr. CAMPBELL - BANNERMAN,): Stirling, &c.
The arrangement with Lord Massereene is still pending. The responsibility for the delay does not rest with the War Department.
