§ MR. E. H. HULSE (Salisbury)
I beg-to ask the Under-Secretary of State for War, whether, by Order in Council, Clause 1, sub-section 1, and Clause 2, sub-sections (a) and (b) of the Military Manœuvres Bill would be held to apply to any unenclosed land or authorised enclosed lands in the New Forest; and whether the common rights and interests of the inhabitants of that district could and would be recognised under the Act or any proceedings under the said Act?
§ MR. BRODRICK
It is not proposed to treat the New Forest differently from other localities. Should at any time military operations be necessary in the New Forest, the commoners and inhabitants of that district will receive the same protection and compensation for any damage as private individuals.
