§ MR. J. ROUND (Essex, N.E.)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War if he is able to state what steps have been taken to provide a drill shed for the 1st Essex Volunteer Artillery at Harwich?
§ *MR. CAMPBELL-BANNERMAN
This corps has till recently been allowed to use a shed the property of the Government; but that shed has been pulled down and replaced by another. The new shed is fully occupied by the garrison armament; and there is no room in it for the Volunteers. Arrangements have, however, been made, under which it is hoped that a shed will be ready for them soon after Whitsuntide, till which time the corps have made local arrangements for the use of a shed.
