§ MR. PIRIE
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War whether the difficulty connected with the acquisition of land for the Clyde defence works, a scheme for which has been considered and approved of for over 10 years, is any nearer solution; what is the precise nature of the difficulties in securing a suitable position; and who is responsible for these difficulties?
§ MR. BRODRICK
The Secretary of State has undertaken to see a deputation on this question to-morrow. It would be undesirable to enter upon the subject previous to the discussion with the deputation.
